Isaiah 50 - Black Sky - 42x42
Isaiah speaks as the Messiah—He will have the tongue of the learned—He will give His back to the smiters—He will not be confounded
2 ... Is my hand shortened at all, that it cannot redeem? behold, at my rebuke I dry up the sea, I make the rivers a wilderness: their fish stinketh, because there is no water...
3 I clothe the heavens with blackness, and I make sackcloth their covering. 6 I gave my back to the smiters, I hid not my face from shame and spitting. 7 For the Lord God will help me; ... therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed. 9 ...who is he that shall condemn me? lo, they all shall wax old as a garment; the moth shall eat them up. 11 ...all ye that kindle a fire, that compass yourselves about with sparks: walk in the light of your fire, and in the sparks that ye have kindled. This shall ye have of mine hand
A prophecy of the suffering of Christ; he shall overcome. A glimmer of hope above.
