A Sign for the Unbelieving Jews

In Isaiah 28 God says that He will bring foreign tongues to speak in Israel “as a judgment to wake up his people and turn them from their sins.”The context of Isaiah’s prophecy is about the coming invasion of Israel and Jerusalem by the Babylonians. So what does Paul do? He takes that scene in Isaiah and applies it to his day. He calls tongues a sign for unbelieving Jews just as Isaiah did in his own day.
