The first of the Major Prophets is Isaiah, a book known for its poetic beauty and powerful imagery.

Jeremiah, often referred to as the "weeping prophet," is the second Major Prophet. He prophesied during a tumultuous period in Judah's history, warning the people of their impending destruction and calling them to repentance. Despite facing rejection and persecution, Jeremiah remained faithful to his calling, and his prophecies emphasize the importance of personal righteousness and devotion to God.
The book of Lamentations, also ascribed to Jeremiah, is a poetic lament over the destruction of Jerusalem and the exile of the Israelites. It is a somber reflection on the consequences of disobedience and a reminder of the consequences of turning away from God's commands.

Ezekiel's prophecies include vivid descriptions of the restoration of Israel and the coming of the new temple, emphasizing the importance of personal responsibility and repentance.
Lastly, the book of Daniel, named after its protagonist, is a unique blend of prophecy and history. Daniel was a captive in Babylon who interpreted dreams and visions for kings, foretelling future events and revealing God's sovereign plan for the nations. His prophecies include visions of beasts, kingdoms, and the eventual triumph of God's kingdom over all.
