Question: Is Isaiah:3:24-26 a dual prophecy, referring both to the destruction at the hands of Babylon and the Nazi Holocaust?
Answer: No. That could not be the case because, according to this passage, Israel would be in her land when this destruction took place, and it would come about through a war: “Thy men shall fall by the sword, and thy mighty in the war. And her gates shall lament and mourn; and she being desolate shall sit upon the ground.” The six million Jews killed in the Holocaust did not die as a result of a war against Israel, which had no gates to “lament,” not having yet been restored to her land. In fact, it was probably the Holocaust that stirred a short-lived sympathy, which caused the nations to designate land for modern Israel.
