1 Isaiah 1-4 – Milt Montague

The vision of Isaiah the son of Amoz

Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth
For the Lord has spoken:
Children have I reared and brought up,
But they have rebelled against me

The ox knows its owner,
And the donkey its master’s crib,
But Israel does not know,
My people do not understand.

Ah, sinful nation,
A people laden with iniquity,
Offspring of evildoers,
Children who deal corruptly
Turn back to Him.

**It seems that even in the days when the Bible was current events, they had the same problems with their kids that we have today.

Milt was born and raised in new york city, survived The Great Depression, the school system, and World War ll.  After 20 years back at college he discovered poetry at 85.  Now at 90 plus he has 54 poems published in 14 different magazines.
