  • I have a copy of the Recovery Bible, that many recovering addicts use, I find it very helpful and this is what it says about that scripture- Isaiah 11:11-16--God's power to restore dysfunctional families is great. The family of Israel had fallen. Many had been scattered among the nations in the Dispersion. The nations of Israel and Judah were locked in destr4uctive patterns of jealousy. Out of this mess, God promised to bring restoration and unity. He can do the same for us. If our family is broken because of abuse, addiction, jealousy, etc., God can unify and heal it. First we must begin the recovery process with open communication and completer trust in God. Sometimes you have to read several scriptures before and after to fully understand the scripture. I hope this helps you.

  • This has to do with the end times when Christ will return to earth and gather His people to set up His earthly kingdom.

  • Isaiah 11: 13. You need to really start at the 11th verse. This is when the prophet Isaiah foresees a time when the oistile enemies of Israel will be at peace with her during the millennial kingdom.

  • Maybe you need to try a good bible with a commentary included. One that is excellent is the King James Study Bible Published by Nelson. Very Very informative on historical views and how to apply it to present day.
