Isaiah 29:22

Context

29:22 So this is what the Lord, the one who delivered Abraham, says to the family of Jacob: 1 

“Jacob will no longer be ashamed;

their faces will no longer show their embarrassment. 2 

Isaiah 41:8

Context
The Lord Encourages His People

41:8 “You, my servant Israel,

Jacob whom I have chosen,

offspring of Abraham my friend, 3 

Isaiah 63:16

Context

63:16 For you are our father,

though Abraham does not know us

and Israel does not recognize us.

You, Lord, are our father;

you have been called our protector from ancient times. 4 

1 tn Heb “So this is what the Lord says to the house of Jacob, the one who ransomed Abraham.” The relative pronoun must refer back to “the Lord,” not to the immediately preceding “Jacob.” It is uncertain to what event in Abraham’s experience this refers. Perhaps the name “Abraham” stands here by metonymy for his descendants through Jacob. If so, the Exodus is in view.

2 tn Heb “and his face will no longer be pale.”

3 tn Or perhaps, “covenantal partner” (see 1 Kgs 5:15 HT [5:1 ET]; 2 Chr 20:7).

4 tn Heb “our protector [or “redeemer”] from antiquity [is] your name.”
