Isaiah

Isaiah

Chapter 29

1

1 Woe to Ariel, Ariel, the city where David encamped! Add year to year, let the feasts come round.

2

But I will bring distress upon Ariel, with mourning and grief. You shall be to me like Ariel,

3

I will encamp like David against you; I will encircle you with outposts and set up siege works against you.

4

2 Prostrate you shall speak from the earth, and from the base dust your words shall come. Your voice shall be like a ghost’s from the earth, and your words like chirping from the dust.

5

The horde of your arrogant shall be like fine dust, the horde of the tyrants like flying chaff. Then suddenly, in an instant,

6

you shall be visited by the LORD of hosts, With thunder, earthquake, and great noise, whirlwind, storm, and the flame of consuming fire.

7

3 Then like a dream, a vision in the night, Shall be the horde of all the nations who war against Ariel with all the earthworks of her besiegers.

8

As when a hungry man dreams he is eating and awakens with an empty stomach, Or when a thirsty man dreams he is drinking and awakens faint and dry, So shall the horde of all the nations be, who make war against Zion.

9

4 Be irresolute, stupefied; blind yourselves and stay blind! Be drunk, but not from wine, stagger, but not from strong drink!

10

For the LORD has poured out on you a spirit of deep sleep. He has shut your eyes (the prophets) and covered your heads (the seers).

11

For you the revelation of all this has become like the words of a sealed scroll. When it is handed to one who can read, with the request, “Read this,” he replies, “I cannot; it is sealed.”

12

When it is handed to one who cannot read, with the request, “Read this,” he replies, “I cannot read.”

13

The Lord said: Since this people draws near with words only and honors me with their lips alone, though their hearts are far from me, And their reverence for me has become routine observance of the precepts of men,

14

Therefore I will again deal with this people in surprising and wondrous fashion: The wisdom of its wise men shall perish and the understanding of its prudent men be hid.

15

Woe to those who would hide their plans too deep for the LORD! Who work in the dark, saying, “Who sees us, or who knows us?”

16

Your perversity is as though the potter were taken to be the clay: As though what is made should say of its maker, “He made me not!” Or the vessel should say of the potter, “He does not understand.”

17

5 But a very little while, and Lebanon shall be changed into an orchard, and the orchard be regarded as a forest!

18

On that day the deaf shall hear the words of a book; And out of gloom and darkness, the eyes of the blind shall see.

19

The lowly will ever find joy in the LORD, and the poor rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.

20

For the tyrant will be no more and the arrogant will have gone; All who are alert to do evil will be cut off,

21

those whose mere word condemns a man, Who ensnare his defender at the gate, and leave the just man with an empty claim.

22

6 Therefore thus says the LORD, the God of the house of Jacob, who redeemed Abraham: Now Jacob shall have nothing to be ashamed of, nor shall his face grow pale.

23

When his children see the work of my hands in his midst, They shall keep my name holy; they shall reverence the Holy One of Jacob, and be in awe of the God of Israel.

24

Those who err in spirit shall acquire understanding, and those who find fault shall receive instruction.

1 [1-2] Ariel: variously interpreted to mean “lion of God” or “hearth (altar) of God,” a poetic name for Jerusalem; or perhaps to be read as Uru-el, “foundation of God,” an archaic name for the Jebusite city of Jerusalem; like that Ariel, against which David encamped, it will be besieged by God.
2 Chirping: see note on ⇒ Isaiah 8:19.
3 [7-8] Just when the Assyrians think their capture of Jerusalem to be certain, the Lord will snatch victory from their hands and save his city.
4 [9-12] Jerusalem in her blindness refuses to believe God’s revelation that she will be saved.
5 [17-24] The prophet presents God’s plan of redemption in terms of unheard-of natural phenomena as if such changes in nature took place, e.g., the change of the cedars of Lebanon into an orchard (⇒ Isaiah 29:17).
6 [22] Who redeemed Abraham: by freeing him from the idolatry of his native land.

Isaiah

Chapter 11

1

1 But a shoot shall sprout from the stump of Jesse, and from his roots a bud shall blossom.

2

2 The spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him: a spirit of wisdom and of understanding, A spirit of counsel and of strength, a spirit of knowledge and of fear of the LORD,

3

and his delight shall be the fear of the LORD. Not by appearance shall he judge, nor by hearsay shall he decide,

4

But he shall judge the poor with justice, and decide aright for the land’s afflicted. He shall strike the ruthless with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips he shall slay the wicked.

5

Justice shall be the band around his waist, and faithfulness a belt upon his hips.

6

3 Then the wolf shall be a guest of the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; The calf and the young lion shall browse together, with a little child to guide them.

7

The cow and the bear shall be neighbors, together their young shall rest; the lion shall eat hay like the ox.

8

The baby shall play by the cobra’s den, and the child lay his hand on the adder’s lair.

9

There shall be no harm or ruin on all my holy mountain; for the earth shall be filled with knowledge of the LORD, as water covers the sea.

10

On that day, The root of Jesse, set up as a signal for the nations, The Gentiles shall seek out, for his dwelling shall be glorious.

11

4 On that day, The Lord shall again take it in hand to reclaim the remnant of his people that is left from Assyria and Egypt, Pathros, Ethiopia, and Elam, Shinar, Hamath, and the isles of the sea.

12

He shall raise a signal to the nations and gather the outcasts of Israel; The dispersed of Judah he shall assemble from the four corners of the earth.

13

The envy of Ephraim shall pass away, and the rivalry of Judah be removed; Ephraim shall not be jealous of Judah, and Judah shall not be hostile to Ephraim;

14

5 But they shall swoop down on the foothills of the Philistines to the west, together they shall plunder the Kedemites; Edom and Moab shall be their possessions, and the Ammonites their subjects.

15

6 The LORD shall dry up the tongue of the Sea of Egypt, and wave his hand over the Euphrates in his fierce anger And shatter it into seven streamlets, so that it can be crossed in sandals.

16

There shall be a highway for the remnant of his people that is left from Assyria, As there was for Israel when he came up from the land of Egypt.

1 [1] Jesse: David’s father. Shoot . . . stump: after the Babylonian Exile only a stump of the Davidic dynasty will remain; from it will arise the new shoot, the messianic King.
2 [2-3] The source of the traditional names of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. The Septuagint and the Vulgate read “piety” for fear of the LORD in its first occurence, thus listing seven gifts.
3 [6-9] This picture of the idyllic harmony of paradise is a dramatic symbol of the universal peace and justice of messianic times.
4 [11] Pathros . . . sea: where God’s people lived in exile. Pathros: upper Egypt. Elam: east of Babylonia. Shinar: Babylonia. Hamath: on the Orontes River in Syria. Isles: or coastlands, in the Mediterranean.

Chapter 4

1

1 Seven women will take hold of one man on that day, saying: “We will eat our own food and wear our own clothing; Only let your name be given us, put an end to our disgrace!”

2

2 On that day, The branch of the LORD will be luster and glory, and the fruit of the earth will be honor and splendor for the survivors of Israel.

3

3 He who remains in Zion and he that is left in Jerusalem Will be called holy: every one marked down for life in Jerusalem.

4

When the Lord washes away the filth of the daughters of Zion, And purges Jerusalem’s blood from her midst with a blast of searing judgment,

5

Then will the LORD create, over the whole site of Mount Zion and over her place of assembly, A smoking cloud by day and a light of flaming fire by night.

6

For over all, his glory will be shelter and protection: shade from the parching heat of day, refuge and cover from storm and rain.

1 [1] Seven women . . . one man: the disproportion of the sexes due to war leaves the female population almost without male partners. The women are eager to marry, not for support, but to avoid the disgrace of being childless.

Chapter 120

1

1 A song of ascents. 2 The LORD answered me when I called in my distress:

2

LORD, deliver me from lying lips, from treacherous tongues.

3

3 What will the Lord inflict on you, O treacherous tongue, and what more besides?

4

4 A warrior’s sharpened arrows and fiery coals of brush wood!

5

5 Alas, I was an alien in Meshech, I lived near the tents of Kedar!

6

Too long did I live among those who hated peace.

7

When I spoke of peace, they were for war.

Amanecer-2-X

1 [Psalm 120] A thanksgiving, reporting divine rescue (Psalm 120:10) yet with fervent prayer for further protection against lying attackers (⇒ Psalm 120:2-4). The psalmist is acutely conscious of living away from God’s own land where divine peace prevails (⇒ Psalm 120:5-7).
2 [1] Song of ascents: Psalm 120-134 all begin with this superscription. Most probably  these fifteen psalms once formed a collection of psalms sung when pilgrims went to Jerusalem, since   on “ascended” to Jerusalem (⇒ 1 Kings 12:28; ⇒ Psalm 24:3; ⇒ 122:4; ⇒ Luke 2:42) or to the house of God or to an altar (⇒ 1 Kings 12:33; ⇒ 2 Kings 23:2; ⇒ Psalm 24:3). Less probable is the explanation that these psalms were sung by the exiles when they “ascended” to Jerusalem from Babylonia (cf ⇒ Ezra 7:9). The idea, found in the Mishnah, that the fifteen steps on which the Levites sang corresponded to these fifteen psalms (Middot 2:5) must underlie the Vulgate translation canticum graduum, “song of the steps” or “gradual song.”
3 [3] More besides: a common curse formula in Hebrew was “May the Lord do such and such evils to you [the evils being specified], and add still more to them.” Cf ⇒ 1 Sam 3:17; ⇒ 14:44; ⇒ 25:22. Here the psalmist is at a loss for a suitable malediction.
4 [4] Coals of brushwood: coals made from the stalk of the broom plant burn with intense heat. The psalmist thinks of lighted coals cast at his enemies.
5 [5] Meshech was in the far north (⇒ Genesis 10:2) and Kedar was a tribe of the north Arabian desert (⇒ Genesis 25:13). The psalmist may be thinking generally of all aliens living among inhospitable peoples.

1

1 Hallelujah! 2 Happy are those who fear the LORD, who greatly delight in God’s commands.

2

Their descendants shall be mighty in the land, generation upright and blessed.

3

3 Wealth and riches shall be in their homes; their prosperity shall endure forever.

4

They shine through the darkness, a light for the upright; they are gracious, merciful, and just.

5

All goes well for those gracious in lending, who conduct their affairs with justice.

6

They shall never be shaken; the just shall be remembered forever.

7

They shall not fear an ill report; their hearts are steadfast, trusting the LORD.

8

Their hearts are tranquil, without fear, till at last they look down on their foes.

9

4 Lavishly they give to the poor; their prosperity shall endure forever; their horn shall be exalted in honor.

10

The wicked shall be angry to see this; they will gnash their teeth and waste away; the desires of the wicked come to nothing.

Amanecer-2-X

1 [Psalm 112] An acrostic poem detailing the blessings received by those who remain close to God by obedience to the commandments. Among their blessings are children (⇒ Psalm 112:2), wealth that enables them to be magnanimous (⇒ Psalm 112:3, 5, 9), and virtue by which they encourage others (⇒ Psalm 112:4). The just person is an affront to the wicked, whose hopes remain unfulfilled (⇒ Psalm 112:10). The logic resembles Psalms 1; 111.
2 [1] Happy are those: literally, “Happy the person.” “Person” is used typically, hence the plural translation.
3 [3] Prosperity: literally, “justice.” In the Second Temple Period the word acquired the nuance of liberality and almsgiving. Cf ⇒ Sirach 3:30; ⇒ 7:10; ⇒ Matthew 6:1-4.
4 [9] Their horn: the symbol for vitality and honor.

1 The LORD is king; let the earth rejoice; let the many islands be glad.

2

Cloud and darkness surround the Lord; justice and right are the foundation of his throne.

3

Fire goes before him; everywhere it consumes the foes.

4

Lightning illumines the world; the earth sees and trembles.

The mountains melt like wax before the LORD, before the Lord of all the earth.

6

The heavens proclaim God’s justice; all peoples see his glory.

7

2 All who serve idols are put to shame, who glory in worthless things; all gods bow down before you.

8

Zion hears and is glad, and the cities of Judah rejoice because of your judgments, O LORD.

9

You, LORD, are the Most High over all the earth, exalted far above all gods.

10

The LORD loves those who hate evil, protects the lives of the faithful, rescues them from the hand of the wicked.

11

Light dawns for the just; gladness, for the honest of heart.

1

1 A psalm of David. 2 The LORD says to you, my lord: “Take your throne at my righthand, while I make your enemies your footstool.”

2

The scepter of your sovereign might the LORD will extend from Zion. The LORD says: “Rule over your enemies!

3

3 Yours is princely power from the day of your birth. In holy splendor before the daystar, like the dew I begot you.”

4

4 The LORD has sworn and will not waver: “Like Melchizedek you are a priest forever.”

5

At your right hand is the Lord, who crushes kings on the day of wrath,

6

Who, robed in splendor, judges nations, crushes heads across the wide earth,

5 Who drinks from the brook by the wayside and thus holds high the head.

1 [Psalm 110] A royal psalm in which a court singer recites three oracles in which God assures the king that his enemies are conquered (⇒ Psalm 110:1-2), makes the king “son” in traditional adoption language (⇒ Psalm 110:3), gives priestly status to the king and promises to be with him in future military ventures (⇒ Psalm 110:4-7).
2 [1] The LORD says to you, my lord: literally, “The LORD says to my lord,” a polite form of address of an inferior to a superior. Cf ⇒ 1 Sam 25:25; ⇒ 2 Sam 1:10. The court singer refers to the king. Jesus in the synoptic gospels (⇒ Matthew 22:41-46 and parallels) takes the psalmist to be David and hence “my lord” refers to the messiah, who must be someone greater than David. Your footstool: in ancient times victorious kings put their feet on the prostrate bodies of their enemies.
3 [3] Like the dew I begot you: an adoption formula as in ⇒ Psalm 2:7; ⇒ 89:27-28. Before the daystar: possibly an expression for before the world began (⇒ Proverb 8:22).
4 [4] Like Melchizedek: Melchizedek was the ancient king of Salem (Jerusalem) who blessed Abraham (⇒ Genesis 14:18-20); like other kings of the time he performed priestly functions. Hebrews 7 sees in Melchizedek a type of Christ.
5 [7] Who drinks from the brook by the wayside: the meaning is uncertain. Some see an allusion to a rite of royal consecration at the Gihon spring (cf ⇒ 1 Kings 1:33, ⇒ 38). Others find here an image of the divine warrior (or king) pursuing enemies so relentlessly that he does not stop long enough to eat and drink.
