Isaiah 2:3


2:3 many peoples will come and say,

“Come, let us go up to the Lord’s mountain,

to the temple of the God of Jacob,

so 1  he can teach us his requirements, 2 

and 3  we can follow his standards.” 4 

For Zion will be the center for moral instruction; 5 

the Lord will issue edicts from Jerusalem. 6 

1 tn The prefixed verb form with simple vav (ו) introduces a purpose/result clause after the preceding prefixed verb form (probably to be taken as a cohortative; see IBHS 650 §39.2.2a).

2 tn Heb “his ways.” In this context God’s “ways” are the standards of moral conduct he decrees that people should live by.

3 tn The cohortative with vav (ו) after the prefixed verb form indicates the ultimate purpose/goal of their action.

4 tn Heb “walk in his ways.”

5 tn Heb “for out of Zion will go instruction.”

6 tn Heb “the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.”
