26:5 Indeed, 1 the Lord knocks down those who live in a high place,
he brings down an elevated town;
he brings it down to the ground, 2
he throws it down to the dust.
26:6 It is trampled underfoot
by the feet of the oppressed,
by the soles of the poor.”
1 tn Or “For” (KJV, ASV, NASB, NRSV).
2 tn The translation assumes that יַשְׁפִּילֶנָּה (yashpilennah) goes with the preceding words “an elevated town,” and that יַשְׁפִּילָהּ (yashpilah) belongs with the following words, “to the ground.” See J. N. Oswalt, Isaiah (NICOT), 1:469, n. 7.
