Restoration of Israel

Israel 1948 a

Q. Is the restoration of Israel in Isa 49:8-26 referring to the re-establishment of the Israel nation in 1948 which already happened?

A. Most, but not all e.g. in 1948 the Jewish Diaspora did return from afar all over the world:
v 12 they will come from afar—some from the north, some from the west, some from the region of Aswan i.e. south.

​However,
v 23 ​They will bow down before you with their faces to the ground;​ they will lick the dust at your feet​, or
v 26 ​I will make your oppressors eat their own flesh;​ they will be drunk on their own blood, as with wine.​

These haven’t happened yet. Many nations are opposed to, or at best only tolerant of, Israel. These await future fulfillment.​
