Isaiah painted a bleak picture of sin and hopelessness. He explained that God was able to hear and to save them from their enemies, but that was not possible because their sins had separated them from Him. When a child of the Lord is mired in sin and all hope seems lost, he should realize that he cannot escape by his own efforts. Repentance and a return to God is the answer. The prophet looked ahead by inspiration and saw salvation for Zion. “The Redeemer will come to Zion, And to those who turn from transgression in Jacob.” A new covenant would be made by the Lord. Through present day knowledge, we know that covenant was of the Lord Jesus Christ that superseded the Law of Moses.
