The Book of Isaiah is the first and longest book of prophecy in the Bible. Its sixty-seven chapters make it the Bible’s second longest book after the Psalms. Isaiah’s message is one of the LORD’s justice and grace. Written 700 years before Christ, its prophecies concern the geopolitical events during the reign of King Hezekiah who was a contemporary of Isaiah, the Babylonian exile, Judah’s return, and the end times. The book of Isaiah also contains numerous prophecies about the Messiah’s birth, mission, character, suffering, and triumph.
This chapter is a prophetic song of the LORD of Hosts’ final victories over all His enemies. It depicts the bitter aftermath of defeat of the LORD’s enemies and the magnificent triumph that His people will celebrate. The center of Chapter 25 speaks of a Messianic banquet that inaugurates the kingdom where death is gone forever, and the LORD of hosts will wipe away all tears. The chapter ends with a memorable image of Moab, the LORD’s enemy, being trampled into a wet pile of manure and failing to get out from beneath the LORD’s foot.
