Isaiah 14:22-23

Context

14:22 “I will rise up against them,”

says the Lord who commands armies.

“I will blot out all remembrance of Babylon and destroy all her people, 1 

including the offspring she produces,” 2 

says the Lord.

14:23 “I will turn her into a place that is overrun with wild animals 3 

and covered with pools of stagnant water.

I will get rid of her, just as one sweeps away dirt with a broom,” 4 

says the Lord who commands armies.

1 tn Heb “I will cut off from Babylon name and remnant” (ASV, NAB, and NRSV all similar).

2 tn Heb “descendant and child.”

3 tn Heb “I will make her into a possession of wild animals.” It is uncertain what type of animal קִפֹּד (qippod) refers to. Some suggest a rodent (cf. NASB, NRSV “hedgehog”), others an owl (cf, NAB, NIV, TEV).

4 tn Heb “I will sweep her away with the broom of destruction.”
