Isaiah 1:1-4 As Isaiah drew closer to God, he became aware of sin, both his own and that of his people. He prophesied for decades while his country went through huge political and economic changes (e.g. Isaiah 1:7 to 2:7).

Isaiah mentions many different types of sins, including:
1. Greedy leaders (56:10-11)
2. Violence (59:6-7)
3. Hypocrisy (66:3)
4. Rejecting God’s prophets (30:10-11)
5. Refusing to trust God (30:1-2)
6. Arrogance (3:9, 16)
7. Drunkenness (28:7-8)
8. Unclean speech (59:3, 13)
9. Dismissing God (17:10; 57:11)
10. Rebellion against God (22:12-13)
11. Injustice (3:14-15)
12. Idolatry (57:5-6)

Isaiah 59:1-4, 7-11, 14-15 This description pulls together many threads of the people’s sin into a striking tapestry.

Isaiah 1:11-15 Even amid all this sinning, the people continued with their religious duties.

Isaiah 1:16-20 God appeals to His people to come and reason together. He yearns to show them favor (30:18) and to cleanse them.
