Isaiah 27:12-13

Context

27:12 At that time 1  the Lord will shake the tree, 2  from the Euphrates River 3  to the Stream of Egypt. Then you will be gathered up one by one, O Israelites. 4  27:13 At that time 5  a large 6  trumpet will be blown, and the ones lost 7  in the land of Assyria will come, as well as the refugees in 8  the land of Egypt. They will worship the Lord on the holy mountain in Jerusalem. 9 

1 tn Heb “and it will be in that day.” The verb that introduces this verse serves as a discourse particle and is untranslated; see note on “in the future” in 2:2.

2 tn Heb “the Lord will beat out.” The verb is used of beating seeds or grain to separate the husk from the kernel (see Judg 6:11; Ruth 2:17; Isa 28:27), and of beating the olives off the olive tree (Deut 24:20). The latter metaphor may be in view here, where a tree metaphor has been employed in the preceding verses. See also 17:6.

3 tn Heb “the river,” a frequent designation in the OT for the Euphrates. For clarity most modern English versions substitute the name “Euphrates” for “the river” here.

4 sn The Israelites will be freed from exile (likened to beating the olives off the tree) and then gathered (likened to collecting the olives).

5 tn Heb “and it will be in that day.” The verb that introduces this verse serves as a discourse particle and is untranslated; see note on “in the future” in 2:2.

6 tn Traditionally, “great” (KJV, NAB, NASB, NIV, NLT); CEV “loud.”

7 tn Or “the ones perishing.”

8 tn Or “the ones driven into.”
