Isaiah 14:8


14:8 The evergreens also rejoice over your demise, 1 

as do the cedars of Lebanon, singing, 2 

‘Since you fell asleep, 3 

no woodsman comes up to chop us down!’ 4 

1 tn Heb “concerning you.”

2 tn The word “singing” is supplied in the translation for stylistic reasons. Note that the personified trees speak in the second half of the verse.

3 tn Heb “lay down” (in death); cf. NAB “laid to rest.”

4 tn Heb “the [wood]cutter does not come up against us.”
