Isaiah 30:31-32


30:31 Indeed, the Lord’s shout will shatter Assyria; 1 

he will beat them with a club.

30:32 Every blow from his punishing cudgel, 2 

with which the Lord will beat them, 3 

will be accompanied by music from the 4  tambourine and harp,

and he will attack them with his weapons. 5 

1 tn Heb “Indeed by the voice of the Lord Assyria will be shattered.”

2 tc The Hebrew text has “every blow from a founded [i.e., “appointed”?] cudgel.” The translation above, with support from a few medieval Hebrew mss, assumes an emendation of מוּסָדָה (musadah, “founded”) to מוּסָרֹה (musaroh, “his discipline”).

3 tn Heb “which the Lord lays on him.”

4 tn Heb “will be with” (KJV similar).

5 tn The Hebrew text reads literally, “and with battles of brandishing [weapons?] he will fight against him.” Some prefer to emend וּבְמִלְחֲמוֹת (uvÿmilkhamot, “and with battles of”) to וּבִמְחֹלוֹת (uvimkholot, “and with dancing”). Note the immediately preceding references to musical instruments.
