29:14 Therefore I will again do an amazing thing for these people –
an absolutely extraordinary deed. 1
Wise men will have nothing to say,
the sages will have no explanations.” 2
29:19 The downtrodden will again rejoice in the Lord;
1 tn Heb “Therefore I will again do something amazing with these people, an amazing deed, an amazing thing.” This probably refers to the amazing transformation predicted in vv. 17-24, which will follow the purifying judgment implied in vv. 15-16.
2 tn Heb “the wisdom of their wise ones will perish, the discernment of their discerning ones will keep hidden.”
3 tn Or “will rejoice” (NIV, NCV, NLT).
