Isaiah 43

Drinks on the House

16 Thus says the LORD, who makes a way in the sea, a path in the mighty waters, 17 who brings out chariot and horse, army and warrior; they lie down, they cannot rise, they are extinguished, quenched like a wick: 18 Do not remember the former things, or consider the things of old. 19 I am about to do a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. 20 The wild animals will honor me, the jackals and the ostriches; for I give water in the wilderness, rivers in the desert, to give drink to my chosen people, 21 the people whom I formed for myself so that they might declare my praise. 22 Yet you did not call upon me, O Jacob; but you have been weary of me, O Israel! 23 You have not brought me your sheep for burnt offerings, or honored me with your sacrifices. I have not burdened you with offerings, or wearied you with frankincense. 24 You have not bought me sweet cane with money, or satisfied me with the fat of your sacrifices. But you have burdened me with your sins; you have wearied me with your iniquities. 25 I, I am He who blots out your transgressions for my own sake, and I will not remember your sins.

Musings

More on how the second exodus (Babylon to Jerusalem) will be made easy instead of difficult (per the original exodus from Egypt to Canaan). God also makes the case that God didn't abandon Israel; it was the other way around. They didn't observe temple worship and even when they did, it had not kept them from sin. God suggests the approach that many a coach recommends to their good athletes ... have a short memory when things aren't working (aka keep trying until it's working again). God is looking past the past problems hoping this will set the stage for God's people to do better in the future. Hopefully they will learn from it.
