Biblical prophecy fulfilled? Or just a coincidence, or could those verses be referring to something else?
If you follow Isaiah through, it's pretty clear that he's talking about people who are not heeding his warnings. God had judged Israel; they were blind, deaf, and hard hearted (see chapter 6). Isaiah is commenting and talking about Judah.
