the Bitter Fruits of Disobeying God
These predictions against the Hebrew people were partially fulfilled in earlier invasions, as for instance, those of Nebuchadnezzar and his generals; but it is to the Roman conquest of Judea that we must look for complete fulfillment. One only needs to compare these words with the narrative of Josephus to see the exact accomplishment which took place during the wars of Vespasian and Titus. The Jews themselves admit this.

In the near future, our children, if not we, shall see a fulfillment of Isa 60:1-22 ; Isa 61:1-11 . See Act 3:19-20 .
