THE ROLE and responsibility of a watchman opens this week’s study. But beyond the burden watchmen carry for sounding the alert when enemies approach is a deeper sense of the word, a meaning rooted in the similarity of the Aramaic and Hebrew words for “Watcher” (Strong’s H5894) and “city” (Strong’s H5982), which is a place guarded by a watch.
We discuss the implications of this parallel (see Isaiah 14:21 and substitute “Watchers” for “cities”) and God’s promise of judgment for false shepherds. Then we move on to the prophecies of Israel’s restoration and judgment against the land of Edom, which apparently allied itself with the Chaldeans of Babylon when they sacked Jerusalem and destroyed the Temple.
