Isaiah 13:17-18

Context

13:17 Look, I am stirring up the Medes to attack them; 1 

they are not concerned about silver,

nor are they interested in gold. 2 

13:18 Their arrows will cut young men to ribbons; 3 

they have no compassion on a person’s offspring, 4 

they will not 5  look with pity on children.

1 tn Heb “against them”; NLT “against Babylon.”

2 sn They cannot be bought off, for they have a lust for bloodshed.

3 tn Heb “and bows cut to bits young men.” “Bows” stands by metonymy for arrows.

4 tn Heb “the fruit of the womb.”

5 tn Heb “their eye does not.” Here “eye” is a metonymy for the whole person.
