Isaiah chapter 16 continues the burden of God against Moab for her culture of pride, her lies, her cursing the people of God and for her inviting others to join with her in evil. She has had an 1190 year long run of rebellion since the people of Moab began in a cave in Zoar as a result of the incestuous encounter between Lot and his two daughters. Now God announces that He will destroy Moab. In the midst of this disclosure of God‚Äôs judgment against Moab, God delivers an offer of grace - a call for reconciliation. God calls His enemies to be reconciled with Him. But the salvation does not come without a price. It is the price of a lamb. This very moving passage also illustrates the love of God for sinners, and how He weeps with them for their calamities. However, the culture that was launched in that cave in Zoar will end in mass graves in the land of Moab.
