A day when a man looks to His Maker

Isaiah Bible Background

09.29.2019 – Old Testament: Isa 17.7–8

To read the Bible in a year, read Isaiah 16–18 on September 29, In the year of our Lord 2019

By Don Ruhl

The Lord announced a time when He would overthrow Damascus, Israel, and the nations, but He also announced through Isaiah that something else wonderful would happen:

In that day a man will look to his Maker,
And his eyes will have respect for the Holy One of Israel.
He will not look to the altars,
The work of his hands;
He will not respect what his fingers have made,
Nor the wooden images nor the incense altars.

– Isaiah 17.7–8

Too bad that people finally turn to their Maker when they see or experience suffering, but sometimes that is just what it takes.


  • What did it take to turn you to the Lord?
  • Do you have respect for the Holy One of Israel?
