Isaiah 22:9-11

Context

22:9 You saw the many breaks

in the walls of the city of David; 1 

you stored up water in the lower pool.

22:10 You counted the houses in Jerusalem, 2 

and demolished houses so you could have material to reinforce the wall. 3 

22:11 You made a reservoir between the two walls

for the water of the old pool –

but you did not trust in 4  the one who made it; 5 

you did not depend on 6  the one who formed it long ago!

1 tn Heb “the breaks of the city of David, you saw that they were many.”

2 map For location see Map5 B1; Map6 F3; Map7 E2; Map8 F2; Map10 B3; JP1 F4; JP2 F4; JP3 F4; JP4 F4.

3 tn Heb “you demolished the houses to fortify the wall.”

4 tn Heb “look at”; NAB, NRSV “did not look to.”

5 tn The antecedent of the third feminine singular suffix here and in the next line is unclear. The closest feminine noun is “pool” in the first half of the verse. Perhaps this “old pool” symbolizes the entire city, which had prospered because of God’s provision and protection through the years.

6 tn Heb “did not see.”
