Isaiah Outline

Outline of Isaiah Chapters 36, 37, 38, and 39
—King Hezekiah in Jerusalem

This page provides an outline of Isaiah chapters 36 to 39 for your reference. The complete outline of Isaiah is spread over several lessons.

1 Context Overview

In chapters twenty-eight to thirty-nine of Isaiah, Jerusalem is issued with a series of warnings,especially that their trust in Egypt as an ally is misplaced, and they should be trusting in God. These warnings are followed by encouragement, in the form of poems about the Messiah, "the King in his beauty." Next Isaiah warns all nations that they are accountable to God. Isaiah then tells the story of how God helped king Hezekiah in Jerusalem to save the city from destruction by Sennacherib king of Assyria. He then records how God extended Hezekiah’s life, and promised him that Jerusalem would not be destroyed until after his death.

2 Hezekiah and Sennacherib (Isaiah 36-37)

These two chapters record how Hezekiah king of Judah listens to God and obeys the word of Isaiah. The result is that Sennacherib king of Assyria is defeated in his attack on Jerusalem, and the destruction of Jerusalem is postponed until the Babylonian empire rises to power.

3 Hezekiah’s Life and Reign Extended (Isaiah 38-39).

A very similar record to Isaiah 36-39 is found in 2Kings 18-20. See also 2Chronicles 32.

link Next Outline covers Isaiah chapters 40, 41, 42, 43, and 44 —God’s messages to Judah and the Remnant of Israel. Isaiah looks into the next two centuries beyond the Babylonian captivity to the fall of Babylon, the rise of Persia, and the rebuilding of Jerusalem.
