Isaiah 2:17

Context

2:17 Proud men will be humiliated,

arrogant men will be brought low; 5 

the Lord alone will be exalted 6 

in that day.

1 tn Heb “and the eyes of the pride of men will be brought low, and the arrogance of men will be brought down.” The repetition of the verbs שָׁפַל (shafal) and שָׁחָח (shakhakh) from v. 9 draws attention to the appropriate nature of the judgment. Those proud men who “bow low” before idols will be forced to “bow low” before God when he judges their sin.

2 tn Or “elevated”; CEV “honored.”

3 tn Heb “indeed [or “for”] the Lord who commands armies [traditionally, the Lord of hosts] has a day.”

4 tn Or “against” (NAB, NASB, NRSV).

5 tn Heb “and the pride of men will be brought down, and the arrogance of men will be brought low.” As in v. 11, the repetition of the verbs שָׁפַל (shafal) and שָׁחָח (shakhakh) from v. 9 draws attention to the appropriate nature of the judgment. Those proud men who “bow low” before idols will be forced to “bow low” before God when he judges their sin.

6 tn Or “elevated”; NCV “praised”; CEV “honored.”
