7  In that day, men shall turn to their Maker, their eyes look to the Holy One of Yisrael;

ba-YOM ha-HU yish-EH ha-a-DAM al o-SAY-hu v’-ay-NAV el k’-DOSH yis-ra-AYL tir-E-nah

ז  בַּיּוֹם הַהוּא יִשְׁעֶה הָאָדָם עַל־עֹשֵׂהוּ וְעֵינָיו אֶל־קְדוֹשׁ יִשְׂרָאֵל תִּרְאֶינָה׃

17:7   In that day, men shall turn to their Maker

Yeshayahu prophesies about Damascus, the capital city of Aram. Once Israel’s vicious enemy to the north, Aram had allied itself with Israel in a futile attempt to stave off destruction at the hands of the invading Assyrians. Yeshayahu describes the totality of the destruction of both Aram and Yisrael, but then notes that a few of the Israelites are to be saved, as a remnant made holy, awakened to return to God. This remnant appears in the time of King Yoshiyahu, about whom the Bible recounts that offerings of money were made for the Temple service by men of “Menashe and Ephraim, and from all the remnant of Yisrael,” which the Leviim collected and brought to Yerushalayim (II Chronicles 34:9). Similarly, in the times of Mashiach, the entire kingdom of Yisrael, the remnants of all ten of its “lost tribes,” will return to the Lord and their land.

  • The prophecy starts in verse 1 with the announcement: "The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap".
    Syria, in the prophecy represented by her capital, is now really A RUINOUS HEAP.
    So, it turns out that YHWH Elohim, Israel's Elohim, during the past five years of war had his eyes firmly fixed on that region in the Middle East.
