In the first sample for Isaiah chapter 31, the Lord makes a connection to the 31st Christian book by having Isaiah answer the question that is presented in Obadiah.

OBADIAH 3 The pride of thine heart hath deceived thee, thou… that saith in his heart, Who shall bring me down to the ground?

ISAIAH 31:3 …when the LORD shall stretch out his hand, both he that helpeth shall fall, and he that is holpen (helped) shall fall down

The book of Obadiah only has one chapter, but has several connections.

In the second sample for Isaiah chapter 31, the Lord makes a few connections to the 31st Christian book with God’s fire devouring the heathen, as He defends & delivers mount Zion.

ISAIAH 31:4-9
4 …so shall the LORD of host come down to fight for mount Zion
5 …so will the LORD of host defend Jerusalem; defending also will he deliver it…
8 Then shall the Assyrian fall with the sword, not of a mighty man…shall devour him: but he shall flee from the sword…
9 …and his princes shall be afraid of the ensign saith the LORD, whose fire is in Zion, and his furnace in Jerusalem.

15 For the day of the LORD is near upon all the heathen…
17 But upon mount Zion shall be deliverance, and there shall be holiness; and the house of Jacob shall possess their possessions.
18 And the house of Jacob shall be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame, and the house of Esau for stubble, and they shall kindle in them, and devour them; and there shall not be any remaining…

In the third sample for Isaiah chapter 31, the Lord makes several connections to the 31st Jewish book with:
• People from Israel who go to a foreign country for help, rather than looking to the Lord.
• The LORD’s hand go out against these people.
• The people turning from this world, back to the LORD.

This connection starts in Isaiah verse 1, and is found in Ruth chapter 1.

ISAIAH 31:1-6
1 Woe unto them that go down to Egypt for help… they look not unto the Holy One of Israel, neither seek the LORD!
2 Yet he (the LORD)… will arise against the house of evil doers and against the help of them that work iniquity.
3 …the LORD shall stretch out his hand, both.. shall fail together.
6 Turn ye unto him (the LORD) from whom the children of Israel have deeply revolted.

RUTH 1:1-22
1 …there was a famine in the land. And a certain man of Bethlehem-judah went to … the country of Moab, he and his wife (Naomi), and his two sons.
3 … Naomi’s husband died …
5 And … (her sons) died also both of them …
6 Then she (Naomi) arose with her daughter in law (Ruth), that she might return from the country of Moab
13 …the hand of the LORD has gone out against me.
21 …the LORD hath testified against me, and the Almighty hath afflicted me
22 So Naomi returned, and Ruth…with her which returned out of the country of Moab and they came to Bethlehem…
