15 And the
LORD [Yahovah] shall utterly destroy [charam] the tongue [lashown] of the
Egyptian [Mitsrayim] sea; [yam] and with his mighty [`ayam]
wind [ruwach] shall he shake [nuwph] his hand [yad] over the
river, [nahar] and shall smite [nakah] it in the seven [sheba`]
streams, [nachal] and make men go over [darak] dryshod. [na`al]KJV-Interlinear
15 And the
Lord will utterly destroy The tongue of the Sea of Egypt; And He will wave His
hand over the River With His scorching wind; And He will strike it into seven
streams, And make men walk over dry-shod. NASB
The Sea of Egypt is generally a term that refers to the Suez Gulf or the Red Sea.
The river, is most often used to refer to the Euphrates River.
The Tigress and the Euphrates both empty into the Persian Gulf or the Gulf of Aqaba.
Both of these gulfs when viewed on a map look like tongues that extend northward from the Arabian Sea.
The imagery here is from the exodus when God parted the waters of the Red Sea and the Israelites crossed over on dry land. The barrier was removed and the crossing was made easy.
And what Isaiah is saying here is that God will remove the most formidable barriers that have historically prevented the Jews from returning to Israel.
But even more than that, this regathering is not to Jerusalem exclusively, or even to the land, but it is a regathering of the surviving Jewish people, to Christ.
The scorching wind, the shaking of His hand, the seven streams, all point to the resolve of purpose, and to the finality and accomplishment of Gods plan.
When the Kingdom of God is installed, then all barriers, great and small, will be removed.
Evil is removed, the wildness and uncertainties of nature are removed, the enemies of the world are removed, and the geographical features of great seas and rivers and such, will be removed.
For people all over the world, who survive at the end of the Tribulation, and this is not exclusive to the Middle East, the path to Christ, will be made easy.
