Isaiah
God tells us about the new world He shall create in the future where lions shall no longer eat meat but straw instead.

Isaiah

The twenty-third book in the Bible, and first of the Prophetic Books, is the Book of Isaiah. There are seventeen Prophetic Books in all and they make up approximately one quarter of the Bible as a whole.

Isaiah is considered by many to have been the greatest of all the prophets. He served under four different kings of Judah, but became unpopular because of the harshness of his words.

The first 39 chapters in Isaiah tell us of holiness and God's justice (the main theme of the Old Testament as a whole) whilst the last 27 are about God's compassion (the theme of the New Testament). Coincidentally there are 39 books in the Old Testament and 27 in the New Testament.

All quotations from the Bible are taken from the Authorised King James Version.

26 times

'Salvation' appears only 7 times in the other 16 Prophetic Books. One of Isaiah's major themes is our salvation through God.

Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end,
upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom,
to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice
from henceforth even for ever.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this"

And one cried unto another, and said,
Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts:

"Behold, for peace I had great bitterness:
but thou hast in love to my soul delivered it from the pit of corruption:
for thou hast cast all my sins behind thy back.
For the grave cannot praise thee,
death can not celebrate thee:
they that go down into the pit cannot hope for thy truth.
The living, the living, he shall praise thee, as I do this day:

therefore we will sing my songs to the stringed instruments
all the days of our life in the house of the Lord"

But he was wounded for our transgressions,
he was bruised for our iniquities:
the chastisement of our peace was upon him;
and with his stripes we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray;
we have turned every one to his own way;
and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all"

for they are the seed of the blessed of the Lord,
and their offspring with them.
And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer;
and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.
The wolf and the lamb shall feed together,
and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock:
and dust shall be the serpent’s meat.
They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain,
saith the Lord"
