Isaiah 21:11-16 - Two Sons
Remembering that Judah is the ultimate audience here, there is a warning to her not to make alliances with other nations that are under the judgment of God (even if it is a year away, vs.16-17), even if those nations might be closely related to Judah. (The nation of Edom came from Jacob’s brother Esau and the Arabians were descended from Ishmael). As we’ll see in subsequent chapters Judah was to learn to trust in the Lord! Is your trust in God out of balance with your trust in other people?
