Isaiah 30:10-12


30:10 They 1  say to the visionaries, “See no more visions!”

and to the seers, “Don’t relate messages to us about what is right! 2 

Tell us nice things,

relate deceptive messages. 3 

30:11 Turn aside from the way,

stray off the path. 4 

Remove from our presence the Holy One of Israel.” 5 

30:12 For this reason this is what the Holy One of Israel says:

“You have rejected this message; 6 

you trust instead in your ability to oppress and trick, 7 

and rely on that kind of behavior. 8 

1 tn Heb “who” (so NASB, NRSV). A new sentence was started here in the translation for stylistic reasons.

2 tn Heb “Do not see for us right things.”

3 tn Heb “Tell us smooth things, see deceptive things.”

4 sn The imagery refers to the way or path of truth, as revealed by God to the prophet.

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

6 tn The sentence actually begins with the word “because.” In the Hebrew text vv. 12-13 are one long sentence.

7 tn Heb “and you trust in oppression and cunning.”

8 tn Heb “and you lean on it”; NAB “and depend on it.”
