1.    The Lord said he would lay in Zion a stone for a foundation that is tried, precious and a sure foundation; and those that believed and trusted will never be dismayed. What did he say would be His measuring line and the plume line for those who believed and trusted in this stone?

2.   King Hezekiah became deathly ill; he prayed earnestly to God and he wept bitterly.  God promised to extend his life and to deliver his city from the King of Assyria.  What miracle in nature did God say he would send to show that He would do what he promised Hezekiah?

3.  Two Part Question: Despite the number of times God showed his love and commitment to the chosen ones, they continued to turn away from Him time and time again.  Yet, God continued to show them compassion; Isaiah writes-“Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you; he rises to show compassion. For the Lord is a God of justice.”(NIV) Part 1- Who then did he say would be blessed by God?  Part 2-What will God do when they cry for help
4.   Isaiah prophesied that God would say as he proclaimed Israel’s redemption; bring my son’s from far off and my daughters from the ends of the earth.  What qualified them sons and daughters of God? 
5.  Two Part Question:  Isaiah writes; “Although the Lord gives you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, your teachers will be hidden no more/ with your own eyes you will see them. Whether you turn to the right or the left, your ears will hear a voice you.”(NIV) Part 1-What did Isaiah say the voice would instruct those who wait on the Lord?   Part 2-What would they do after accepting those instructions?

6.  The destruction of nations is foretold by Isaiah; in it he tells how the land will be burned, parched, thorns will overrun palaces, etc. He says not one detail will be missed in fulfilling the Word of God.  God has judged them because of their blatant disobedience. However, when this is over God’s Word is continually fulfilled, and joy returns.  The wilderness/desert will bloom, rejoicing and singing shall occur. Where will the glory/excellency and splendor of God be given during this time of replenish?
7.   As Isaiah continue to describe how joy is returned to Zion, he speaks of a highway that no one who is unclean or evil will be allowed to walk on.  It will be only for those who walk in that Way.  He said, “wicked fools will not go about on it.”(NIV) What was the name of this highway?
8.   God said, “Here is my chosen servant; my chosen one, in whom I delight!” God said that he would put His spirit on him and he will bring justice to the nationsHe said that the Lord have called thee in righteousness; what was the purpose of this gift from God to the Israelites and to the Gentiles? 
9.   God instructed Isaiah, after Hezekiah’s complete recovery from his illness, to tell the people there sins where pardoned and that He had punished them in full.  Isaiah said, “The voice said, Cry. And he said, What shall I cry? All flesh is grass, and all the goodliness thereof is as the flower of the field: The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: because the spirit of the Lord bloweth upon it: surely the people is grass the grass withereth, the flower fadeth:”(KJV)  What did Isaiah say would stand forever? 

10. King Hezekiah tore his robe after he read the results in a letter where the King of Assyria described how he would destroy Hezekiah’s kingdom.  Hezekiah went to the temple prayed to God; God spoke to the prophet Isaiah saying; “ Therefore thus saith the Lord concerning the king of Assyria, He shall not come into this city, nor shoot an arrow there, nor come before it with shields, nor cast a bank against it. By the way that he came, by the same shall he return, and shall not come into this city, saith the  Lord.”(KJV)
 Part 1- What two reasons did God give for saving this city?  Part 2-What action did God execute against the Assyrians?

11. After Hezekiah realized he was not going to die from his illness he wrote an elaborate poem about his ordeal.  Who, in the poem, did Hezekiah say could praise God and could not praise God? 

12. Isaiah tells Jerusalem that the Lord is the everlasting God, the creator of the ends of the earth.  He does not grow tired or weary, but man does.  Young men will become tired, stumble and fall after a while.  What four blessings did he say would be the reward for those who wait on the Lord?
13. God said he would lead the blind by ways they have not known, turn darkness into light, and make rough places smooth for those who give Him praises.  What did He say would be the fate of those who trust in idols?
14. As Isaiah prophesized the Word of God; God said, “I am the Lord and there is no other apart from me there is no God.” He then warns those who questions or fights against Him, the Creator!  What three things did God compare himself, the Creator, while explaining how ridiculous it is for any man to fight or argue with his Creator?
