Isaiah 11:10

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.

Isaiah 4:5

Context

4:5 Then the Lord will create

over all of Mount Zion 4 

and over its convocations

a cloud and smoke by day

and a bright flame of fire by night; 5 

indeed a canopy will accompany the Lord’s glorious presence. 6 

Psalms 66:2

Context

66:2 Sing praises about the majesty of his reputation! 7 

Give him the honor he deserves! 8 

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 Heb “over all the place, Mount Zion.” Cf. NLT “Jerusalem”; CEV “the whole city.”

5 tn Heb “a cloud by day, and smoke, and brightness of fire, a flame by night.” Though the accents in the Hebrew text suggest otherwise, it might be preferable to take “smoke” with what follows, since one would expect smoke to accompany fire.

sn The imagery of the cloud by day and fire by night recalls the days of Moses, when a cloud and fire were tangible reminders that the Lord was guiding and protecting his people (Exod 13:21-22; 14:19, 24). In the future age envisioned in Isa 4, the Lord’s protective presence will be a reality.

6 tn Heb “indeed (or “for”) over all the glory, a canopy.” This may allude to Exod 40:34-35, where a cloud overshadows the meeting tent as it is filled with God’s glory.

7 tn Heb “his name,” which here stands metonymically for God’s reputation.

8 tn Heb “make honorable his praise.”
