Summary of passage: God spoke to Isaiah telling him to not follow the way of the people, do not fear what they fear; fear only Him. The Lord Almighty is your sanctuary but will be a stumbling stone for many. Isaiah concludes he will wait for the Lord and trust in Him; he and his children are signs from the Lord.
