There's a lot of crazy stuff in Isaiah, and some of it is written in the form of commands. Here are a few examples:
Prepare slaughter for his children for the iniquity of their fathers. Isaiah 14:21These are commands from God, but are they commandments? Probably not. Some are directed at Isaiah, some to Babylonians, some to Israelites, some to eunuchs, sons of sorceresses, adulterers, and whores, And some of these commands are just trash talk directed at no one in particular. So I left them off the list.
Loose the sackcloth from off thy loins, and put off thy shoe from thy foot. Isaiah 20:2
Thou shalt cast them away as a menstruous cloth; thou shalt say unto it, Get thee hence. Isaiah 30:22
Tremble, ye women that are at ease; be troubled, ye careless ones: strip you, and make you bare, and gird sackcloth upon your loins. Isaiah 32:11
Come down, and sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon, sit on the ground ... Make bare the leg, uncover the thigh ... Thy nakedness shall be uncovered. Isaiah 47:2-3
Neither let the eunuch say, Behold, I am a dry tree. Isaiah 56:3
Draw near hither, ye sons of the sorceress, the seed of the adulterer and the whore. Isaiah 57:3
Thou shalt ... suck the breast of kings. Isaiah 60:16
I'll probably have to eliminate some of the crazier commands from the Psalms, Proverbs, and Ecclesiastes. I don't know what "Cast thy bread upon the waters" means, but it seems more like a suggestion than a commandment.
When I finish the list, I'll group them by topic and decide which to include or exclude. I'd appreciate any advice that you might have on this. I want to get the Bible's commandments right -- every jot and tittle!
Here are commands in Isaiah that I've included in the commandments.
- Don't bring God any more vain oblations.
- Wash yourself.
- Seek judgment.
- Relieve the oppressed.
- Judge the fatherless.
- Plead for the widow.
- Don't value human life.
- Tell the righteous people that everything will be OK for them.
- Make God holy.
- Bind up Isaiah's testimony and seal the law among his disciples.
- Say to those who are afraid, "Be strong."
- Look at God and be saved.
- Remember things that happened a long time ago.
