What is your take on Isaiah 45:11 "...and concerning the work of my hands, command you me."


I'm puzzled by this scripture. I'd be interested in some useful interpretations. Is the Creator saying we can command him or is he saying something else? Has anyone had an experience that deals with this scripture?

    Faye Leverett, thank you for sharing your personal experience. How interesting that this scripture caught your eye during your time of hardship. Re: Isaiah 45:11, I very much like your comment that command simply means, "Tell me what you want."

    Interesting! I had not thought of God as being facetious. I will read the entire chapter over to see if I also determine the context as you have. Thanks!

    Yes. I was having trouble with the word "command". Your points clarify why. Atheist or not, I have a great deal of respect for your observations. I appreciate your character.

    Thank you. I appreciate the translation you have provided. It is all too easy to take a phrase out of context. I have been remiss---which is why I needed to ask the question. Appreciate it, JD.

    Do you think the phrase command you me, really means "ask you me?" Can we command the Father? I'm not being facetious. Just want to figure this out..
