20 Description

The description is written by the researcher Alec Mishory. 

Isaiah's prophesies abound in objects and animals as metaphors. They enable artists to depict concise images of single objects in conveying moral and social messages. In a stained glass window dedicated to prophet Isaiah the artist includes a depiction of stars, echoing the prophet's description of the end of days: "For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.  ( Isaiah 13:10). A pair of hands in a priestly blessing: "There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days: for the child shall die a hundred years old; but the sinner being a hundred years old shall be accursed. (Isiah 65:20). Fire: For, behold, the LORD will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire. (Isaiah, 6:15). Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the LORD of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.. (Isaiah 5:24). In a furious prophecy, Isaiah uses an image of a Mountain: "And he will destroy in this mountain the face of the covering cast over all people, and the vail that is spread over all nations."; (Isiah 25:7). Wings: "But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary, and they shall walk, and not faint. (Isaiah, 40:30-31).
