Understanding Isaiah

Today I read Isaiah 23 which is a prophesy about the fall of Tyre.  It is interesting to read the poetry of Isaiah and how they turn to hire, which I take to mean hiring mercenaries to fight their battles for them.  Isaiah's prose is very poetic and I think that is why some people have such a hard time understanding him and why Nephi states that if you don't have a learning of the Jews it is hard to understand him.  That is why if you are not a member of the house of Israel raised in the 700's B.C. the only way to truly understand Isaiah is to have the Spirit about you.  Heavenly Father will help you understanding what it is you need to learn when reading Isaiah.  Just read with the Spirit and you will know what Heavenly Father needs you to know.  Until tomorrow.
