- 22:15-25 Even with the faithless model removed (Shebna) and a faithful model in place (Eliakim), the people and leaders choose faithlessness to their downfall.
- 23:1-14 The commercial strength of a nation will not protect it against God's judgment of its arrogance.
- 23:15-18 Even after restoration, the disciplined nation returns to its old ways; yet, the benefits are taken away and given to the faithful.
