Isaiah 31:9

Context

31:9 They will surrender their stronghold 1  because of fear; 2 

their officers will be afraid of the Lord’s battle flag.” 3 

This is what the Lord says –

the one whose fire is in Zion,

whose firepot is in Jerusalem. 4 

1 tn Heb “rocky cliff” (cf. ASV, NASB “rock”), viewed metaphorically as a place of defense and security.

2 tn Heb “His rocky cliff, because of fear, will pass away [i.e., “perish”].”

3 tn Heb “and they will be afraid of the flag, his officers.”

4 sn The “fire” and “firepot” here symbolize divine judgment, which is heating up like a fire in Jerusalem, waiting to be used against the Assyrians when they attack the city.
