Why Shebna?

So I got to wondering today why this story of Shebna is included in Isaiah 22.  I read this morning, again, to the end of the chapter.  Eliakim is chosen by God to take Shebna’s place, and he is a man of honor and integrity.  But my curiosity wasn’t satisfied, so I  did some searching.  I read several articles that all agreed with each other for the most part. Then I found this article, which i believe says it the most clearly and plainly:


There is no need for me to elucidate further. This article puts it all together in plain and simple terms.

The Bible says,

16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

Every word of Scripture has meaning and value. In the story of Shebna, we can find  so much truth to ponder.
