Isaiah 35:2

Context

35:2 Let it richly bloom; 1 

let it rejoice and shout with delight! 2 

It is given the grandeur 3  of Lebanon,

the splendor of Carmel and Sharon.

They will see the grandeur of the Lord,

the splendor of our God.

Isaiah 35:10

Context

35:10 those whom the Lord has ransomed will return that way. 4 

They will enter Zion with a happy shout.

Unending joy will crown them, 5 

happiness and joy will overwhelm 6  them;

grief and suffering will disappear. 7 

1 tn The ambiguous verb form תִּפְרַח (tifrakh) is translated as a jussive because it is parallel to the jussive form תָגֵל (tagel).

2 tn Heb “and let it rejoice, yes [with] rejoicing and shouting.” גִּילַת (gilat) may be an archaic feminine nominal form (see GKC 421 §130.b).

3 tn Or “glory” (KJV, NIV, NRSV); also a second time later in this verse.

4 tn Heb “and the redeemed will walk, the ransomed of the Lord will return.”

5 tn Heb “[will be] on their head[s].” “Joy” may be likened here to a crown (cf. 2 Sam 1:10). The statement may also be an ironic twist on the idiom “earth/dust on the head” (cf. 2 Sam 1:2; 13:19; 15:32; Job 2:12), referring to a mourning practice.

6 tn Heb “will overtake” (NIV); NLT “they will be overcome with.”

7 tn Heb “grief and groaning will flee”; KJV “sorrow and sighing shall flee away.”
