Isaiah 19:12-13

Context

19:12 But where, oh where, are your wise men? 1 

Let them tell you, let them find out

what the Lord who commands armies has planned for Egypt.

19:13 The officials of Zoan are fools,

the officials of Memphis 2  are misled;

the rulers 3  of her tribes lead Egypt astray.

1 tn Heb “Where are they? Where are your wise men?” The juxtaposition of the interrogative pronouns is emphatic. See HALOT 38 s.v. אֶי.

2 tn Heb “Noph” (so KJV); most recent English versions substitute the more familiar “Memphis.”

3 tn Heb “the cornerstone.” The singular form should be emended to a plural.
