Isaiah 11:10-11

Context
Israel is Reclaimed and Reunited

11:10 At that time 1  a root from Jesse 2  will stand like a signal flag for the nations. Nations will look to him for guidance, 3  and his residence will be majestic. 11:11 At that time 4  the sovereign master 5  will again lift his hand 6  to reclaim 7  the remnant of his people 8  from Assyria, Egypt, Pathros, 9  Cush, 10  Elam, Shinar, 11  Hamath, and the seacoasts. 12 

1 tn Or “in that day” (KJV). The verb that introduces this verse serves as a discourse particle and is untranslated; see note on “in the future” in 2:2.

2 sn See the note at v. 1.

3 tn Heb “ a root from Jesse, which stands for a signal flag of the nations, of him nations will inquire” [or “seek”].

4 tn Or “in that day” (KJV). The verb that introduces this verse serves as a discourse particle and is untranslated; see note on “in the future” in 2:2.

5 tn The Hebrew term translated “sovereign master” here is אֲדֹנָי (’adonai).

6 tc The Hebrew text reads, “the sovereign master will again, a second time, his hand.” The auxiliary verb יוֹסִיף (yosif), which literally means “add,” needs a main verb to complete it. Consequently many emend שֵׁנִית (shenit, “a second time”) to an infinitive. Some propose the form שַׁנֹּת (shannot, a Piel infinitive construct from שָׁנָה, shanah) and relate it semantically to an Arabic cognate meaning “to be high.” If the Hebrew text is retained a verb must be supplied. “Second time” would allude back to the events of the Exodus (see vv. 15-16).

7 tn Or “acquire”; KJV, ASV, NASB, NRSV “recover.”

8 tn Heb “the remnant of his people who remain.”

9 sn Perhaps a reference to Upper (i.e., southern) Egypt (so NIV, NLT; NCV “South Egypt”).

10 tn Or “Ethiopia” (NAB, NRSV, NLT).

11 tn Or “Babylonia” (NIV, NCV, TEV, NLT).

12 tn Or perhaps, “the islands of the sea.”
