Judgement on Jerusalem and Judah.

Isa 3:1 See now, the Lord, the LORD of Armies, is going to take from Jerusalem and Judah every kind of support and their entire supply of food and water.
Isa 3:2 He will take their heroes and soldiers, judges and prophets, fortunetellers and statesmen,
Isa 3:3 military leaders and civilian leaders, counselors, skilled workers, and experts in magic.
Isa 3:4 “I will make boys their leaders. Children will govern them.”
Isa 3:5 People will oppress each other, and everyone will oppress his neighbor. The young will make fun of the old, and common people will make fun of their superiors.


every kind of SUPPORT and their entire SUPPLY of food and water. 

Notes: Just imagine all supplies of food and water are gone, finished with no hope of replenishing them. This is drought and famine in the extreme.

Then the LORD ALMIGHTY will take from them all support:

Military Leaders

Civil Leaders and spiritual leaders

all people with wisdom and counsel and ability to make decisions and know what to do.

Notes v.4. I will make boys their officials, and mere children will govern them.

Fancy those who are weak, young and inexperienced ruling over the nation of Judah. I’m sure that will happen again in our day when []those with no wisdom or leadership skills will be asked to lead.

Isa 3:5 People will oppress each other, and everyone will oppress his neighbor. The young will make fun of the old, and common people will make fun of their superiors.

What a state of anarchy and confusion under the reign of children. The law will be powerless and all rights violated. The feeble and the elderly will be oppressed by unjust exactions and demands of wicked leaders. 

Boys and youths will be insolent to the elders. Instead of deference to age and experience which is inculcated in Jewish young people there will be just rudeness and making fun of the aged. Even common people will make fun of their superiors. People of low rank, the despised and vile will refuse to show deference to the elderly.
