Isaiah 29:14

the sages will have no explanations.” 2 

Isaiah 29:19

the poor among humankind will take delight 3  in the Holy One of Israel. 4 

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).

4 sn See the note on the phrase “the Holy One of Israel” in 1:4.
