Isaiah 29:18-19

29:18 At that time the deaf will be able to hear words read from a scroll,

and the eyes of the blind will be able to see through deep darkness.

29:19 The downtrodden will again rejoice in the Lord;

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

tn Or “In that day” (KJV).

tn Heb “and out of gloom and darkness the eyes of the blind will see.”

sn Perhaps this depicts the spiritual transformation of the once spiritually insensitive nation (see vv. 10-12, cf. also 6:9-10).

tn Or “will rejoice” (NIV, NCV, NLT).

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