Isaiah 22:6

Context

22:6 The Elamites picked up the quiver,

and came with chariots and horsemen; 1 

the men of Kir 2  prepared 3  the shield. 4 

1 tn Heb “[with] the chariots of men, horsemen.”

2 sn A distant region in the direction of Mesopotamia; see Amos 1:5; 9:7.

3 tn Heb “Kir uncovers” (so NAB, NIV).

4 sn The Elamites and men of Kir may here symbolize a fierce army from a distant land. If this oracle anticipates a Babylonian conquest of the city (see 39:5-7), then the Elamites and men of Kir are perhaps viewed here as mercenaries in the Babylonian army. See J. N. Oswalt, Isaiah (NICOT), 1:410.
