Isaiah 29:5-8

Context

29:5 But the horde of invaders will be like fine dust,

the horde of tyrants 1  like chaff that is blown away.

It will happen suddenly, in a flash.

29:6 Judgment will come from the Lord who commands armies, 2 

accompanied by thunder, earthquake, and a loud noise,

by a strong gale, a windstorm, and a consuming flame of fire.

29:7 It will be like a dream, a night vision.

There will be a horde from all the nations that fight against Ariel,

those who attack her and her stronghold and besiege her.

29:8 It will be like a hungry man dreaming that he is eating,

only to awaken and find that his stomach is empty. 3 

It will be like a thirsty man dreaming that he is drinking,

only to awaken and find that he is still weak and his thirst unquenched. 4 

So it will be for the horde from all the nations

that fight against Mount Zion.

1 tn Or “violent men”; cf. NASB “the ruthless ones.”

2 tn Heb “from the Lord who commands armies [traditionally, the Lord of hosts] there will be visitation.” The third feminine singular passive verb form תִּפָּקֵד (tippaqed, “she/it will be visited”) is used here in an impersonal sense. See GKC 459 §144.b.

3 tn Or “that he [or “his appetite”] is unsatisfied.”

4 tn Or “that he is faint and that he [or “his appetite”] longs [for water].”
