Isaiah rebukes Israel’s rejection of God’s kingship while sounding forth the everlasting promise of God’s universal kingdom that will come through the peace-establishing, justice-working Servant King, who will reign over transformed ethnic Israelites and Gentiles in the new creation. “And the haughtiness of man shall be humbled,” says Isaiah, “and the lofty pride of men shall be brought low, and the LORD alone will be exalted in that day” (Isa 2:17). God reigns not through proud men but ultimately through this Servant, who moves through tribulation unto triumph. This is Isaiah’s vision for hope.
