Isaiah 14:4-5

Context
14:4 you will taunt the king of Babylon with these words: 1 

“Look how the oppressor has met his end!

Hostility 2  has ceased!

14:5 The Lord has broken the club of the wicked,

the scepter of rulers.

1 tn Heb “you will lift up this taunt over the king of Babylon, saying.”

2 tc The word in the Hebrew text (מַדְהֵבָה, madhevah) is unattested elsewhere and of uncertain meaning. Many (following the Qumran scroll 1QIsaa) assume a dalet-resh (ד-ר) confusion and emend the form to מַרְהֵבָה (marhevah, “onslaught”). See HALOT 548 s.v. II *מִדָּה and HALOT 633 s.v. *מַרְהֵבָה.
