The first twelve chapters of the Book of Isaiah focus attention on Judah and Jerusalem. Chapters 11 and 12 conclude the prophecies begun in chapter 7 relating to the Messiah. With the power of God’s Spirit, He will judge the earth, establish righteousness and bring to reality the dream of ages, world peace—even throughout the whole of nature, transforming the world into an Edenic paradise.
