Isaiah 26:19

Context

26:19 1 Your dead will come back to life;

your corpses will rise up.

Wake up and shout joyfully, you who live in the ground! 2 

For you will grow like plants drenched with the morning dew, 3 

and the earth will bring forth its dead spirits. 4 

Isaiah 51:17

Context

51:17 Wake up! Wake up!

Get up, O Jerusalem!

You drank from the cup the Lord passed to you,

which was full of his anger! 5 

You drained dry

the goblet full of intoxicating wine. 6 

Isaiah 52:1

Context

52:1 Wake up! Wake up!

Clothe yourself with strength, O Zion!

Put on your beautiful clothes,

O Jerusalem, 7  holy city!

For uncircumcised and unclean pagans

will no longer invade you.

Isaiah 60:1

Context
Zion’s Future Splendor

60:1 “Arise! Shine! For your light arrives!

The splendor 8  of the Lord shines on you!

1 sn At this point the Lord (or prophet) gives the people an encouraging oracle.

2 tn Heb “dust” (so KJV, NAB, NASB, NIV, NRSV).

3 tn Heb “for the dew of lights [is] your dew.” The pronominal suffix on “dew” is masculine singular, like the suffixes on “your dead” and “your corpses” in the first half of the verse. The statement, then, is addressed to collective Israel, the speaker in verse 18. The plural form אוֹרֹת (’orot) is probably a plural of respect or magnitude, meaning “bright light” (i.e., morning’s light). Dew is a symbol of fertility and life. Here Israel’s “dew,” as it were, will soak the dust of the ground and cause the corpses of the dead to spring up to new life, like plants sprouting up from well-watered soil.

4 sn It is not certain whether the resurrection envisioned here is intended to be literal or figurative. A comparison with 25:8 and Dan 12:2 suggests a literal interpretation, but Ezek 37:1-14 uses resurrection as a metaphor for deliverance from exile and the restoration of the nation (see Isa 27:12-13).

5 tn Heb “[you] who have drunk from the hand of the Lord the cup of his anger.”

6 tn Heb “the goblet, the cup [that causes] staggering, you drank, you drained.”

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

8 tn Or “glory” (so most English versions).
