Isaiah 10:1

Context

those who are always instituting unfair regulations, 2 

Isaiah 59:4

Context

59:4 No one is concerned about justice; 3 

no one sets forth his case truthfully.

They depend on false words 4  and tell lies;

they conceive of oppression 5 

and give birth to sin.

1 tn Heb “Woe [to] those who decree evil decrees.” On הוֹי (hoy, “woe, ah”) see the note on the first phrase of 1:4.

2 tn Heb “[to] the writers who write out harm.” The participle and verb are in the Piel, suggesting repetitive action.

3 tn Heb “no one pleads with justice.”

4 tn Heb “nothing”; NAB “emptiness.”

5 tn Or “trouble” (NIV), or “harm.”
