Added in Repentance

Divine Intervention is a passive item added in The Binding of Isaac: Repentance.


  • Double tapping a fire key will create a Divine Shield that slowly moves in the chosen direction.
  • The Divine Shield has a variety of effects.
    • Enemies are pushed back in the opposite direction, completely reversing their trajectory with some added momentum. If they hit a wall or obstacle while being pushed, they take 10 damage and deal 10 damage to enemies they hit.
    • Enemy tears are reflected, dealing damage back to enemies depending on the source of the tear.
    • Enemy Brimstone lasers are reflected, dealing 7 damage per tick (105 damage per second) to enemies hit by the reflection. It can even deflect the colossal brimstone laser fired by The Beast.
    • White beams, such as those used by Dogma in its second phase, are reflected into holy beams similar to those fired by Revelation Revelation.
  • The shield lasts 1 second, and has a cooldown of 3 seconds.
  • This item belongs to the Seraphim set. Collecting three items from this set will transform Isaac into an angel.


  • If any charged item is obtained along with Divine Intervention e.g. Brimstone Brimstone or Revelation, a different fire key may be pressed to put out the shield without forfeiting the charge of said item.
