Isaiah 26:20-21

26:20 Go, my people! Enter your inner rooms!

Close your doors behind you!

Hide for a little while,

until his angry judgment is over!

26:21 For look, the Lord is coming out of the place where he lives,

to punish the sin of those who live on the earth.

The earth will display the blood shed on it;

it will no longer cover up its slain.

tn Heb “until anger passes by.”

tn Heb “out of his place” (so KJV, ASV).

sn This implies that rampant bloodshed is one of the reasons for divine judgment. See the note at 24:5.
