Isaiah 19:5-7


19:5 The water of the sea will be dried up,

and the river will dry up and be empty. 1 

19:6 The canals 2  will stink; 3 

the streams of Egypt will trickle and then dry up;

the bulrushes and reeds will decay,

19:7 along with the plants by the mouth of the river. 4 

All the cultivated land near the river

will turn to dust and be blown away. 5 

1 tn Heb “will dry up and be dry.” Two synonyms are joined for emphasis.

2 tn Heb “rivers” (so KJV, ASV); NAB, CEV “streams”; TEV “channels.”

3 tn The verb form appears as a Hiphil in the Qumran scroll 1QIsaa; the form in MT may be a so-called “mixed form,” reflecting the Hebrew Hiphil stem and the functionally corresponding Aramaic Aphel stem. See HALOT 276 s.v. I זנח.

4 tn Heb “the plants by the river, by the mouth of the river.”

5 tn Heb “will dry up, [being] scattered, and it will vanish.”
