Israel chose a path apart from God. As a result, they were exiled from their land and dominated by foreign nations, but the prophet Isaiah knew that sorrow and sadness would not have the final word. He looked forward to the day when Israel’s gracious God would provide a redeemer to deliver them from oppression and lead them to eternal joy.

Read: Isaiah 51:11, Isaiah 49:13
