Isaiah's message about Israel's future seemed outrageous. After Babylon had devastated their city, the years ahead of them looked bleak and grim. Watchmen on the walls? What walls? The walls had been destroyed by Nebudchadnezzar's army. Withholding corn and wine from their enemies? What corn and wine? With what could they plant? Any farming implements had been looted by the soldiers. It seemed incredible that Israel would ever rise again.
