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 Damascus will lose its kingdom. 5 

The survivors in Syria

will end up like the splendor of the Israelites,”

Isaiah 22:25

Context

22:25 “At that time,” 6  says the Lord who commands armies, “the peg fastened into a solid place will come loose. It will be cut off and fall, and the load hanging on it will be cut off.” 7  Indeed, 8  the Lord has spoken.

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.”

5 tn Heb “and kingship from Damascus”; cf. NASB “And sovereignty from Damascus.”

6 tn Or “In that day” (KJV).

7 sn Eliakim’s authority, though seemingly secure, will eventually be removed, and with it his family’s prominence.

8 tn Or “for” (KJV, NAB, NASB, NRSV).
