The Parallel Bible. The Holy Bible containing the Old and New Testaments translated out of the Original Tongues: being the Authorised Version arranged in parallel columns with the Revised Version (Oxford University Press, 1885). The Book of the Prophet Isaiah.
Isaiah was a contemporary of the prophet Amos. Like Amos, he prophesied that Israel was doomed because of the sins of her people. A distinct mark of Isaiah’s theology is the degree to which it emphasizes God’s dissatisfaction with mere forms and rituals of worship performed for their own sake. Isaiah’s deep concern for justice, moral conduct between people, and sincere faith are all reflected in his emphasis on the Covenant.
