Does he keep breaking up and harrowing his ground?

Isaiah 51:13


51:13 Why do you forget 2  the Lord, who made you,

who stretched out the sky 3 

and founded the earth?

Why do you constantly tremble all day long 4 

at the anger of the oppressor,

when he makes plans to destroy?

Where is the anger of the oppressor? 5

52:5 And now, what do we have here?” 6  says the Lord.

those who rule over them taunt,” 7  says the Lord,

“and my name is constantly slandered 8  all day long.

Isaiah 65:2

to my rebellious people,

who lived in a way that is morally unacceptable,

and who did what they desired. 9

65:5 They say, ‘Keep to yourself!

Don’t get near me, for I am holier than you!’

1 tn Heb “All the day does the plowman plow in order to plant?” The phrase “all the day” here has the sense of “continually, always.” See BDB 400 s.v. יוֹם.

2 tn Heb “and that you forget.”

3 tn Or “the heavens” (also in v. 16). The Hebrew term שָׁמַיִם (shamayim) may be translated “heavens” or “sky” depending on the context.

4 tn Heb “and that you tremble constantly all the day.”

5 tn The question anticipates the answer, “Ready to disappear!” See v. 14.

6 tn Heb “and now what [following the marginal reading (Qere)] to me here?”

7 tn The verb appears to be a Hiphil form from the root יָלַל (yalal, “howl”), perhaps here in the sense of “mock.” Some emend the form to יְהוֹלָּלוֹ (yÿhollalo) and understand a Polel form of the root הָלַל meaning here “mock, taunt.”

8 tn The verb is apparently a Hitpolal form (with assimilated tav, ת) from the root נָאַץ (naats), but GKC 151-52 §55.b explains it as a mixed form, combining Pual and Hitpolel readings.

9 tn Heb “who walked [in] the way that is not good, after their thoughts.”
