Previous Verse < Isaiah 13 > Next Verse

Behold, I will stir up the Medes against them, who shall not regard silver, and as for gold, they shall not delight in it. (ASV)

Pro

Isaiah falsely predicts that the Medes will conquer and destroy Babylon. Jeremiah makes the same mistake, but more frequently: see the Jeremiah 51:11 section for details. --Robert Stevens 11:21, 27 Jul 2006 (CDT)

Response to Con piece: The following two verses refer to destruction. Isaiah 13:18 talks of killing young men and children, and Isaiah 13:19 compares Babylon's fate to that of Sodom and Gomorrah. --Robert Stevens 04:49, 23 Nov 2006 (CST)

Con

There is nothing here about destruction. Also, see my comment in the con section of Jeremiah 51:11 --Austin

Neutral
