Isaiah 17:9

Context

17:9 At that time 1  their fortified cities will be

like the abandoned summits of the Amorites, 2 

which they abandoned because of the Israelites;

there will be desolation.

1 tn Heb “in that day” (so KJV).

2 tn The Hebrew text reads literally, “like the abandonment of the wooded height and the top one.” The following relative clause appears to allude back to the Israelite conquest of the land, so it seems preferable to emend הַחֹרֶשׁ וְהָאָמִיר (hakhoresh vÿhaamir, “the wooded height and the top one”) to חֹרֵשֵׁי הָאֱמֹרִי (khoreshe haemori, “[like the abandonment] of the wooded heights of the Amorites”).
