Isaiah 23:10-18 - Reversal of Fortune
Tyre has been humbled. She can no longer trade on the high seas, and has regressed to the primitive sustenance of farming. It seems likely that Tyre’s 70 years were equal to the 70 years of Judah’s exile in Babylon. What does Isaiah mean by verses 17&18? How can it be that the Lord can use the prosperity of ungodly Tyre for His purposes? Can you think of other examples in the Bible where God used wicked things for good?
