Isaiah 35:9-10

Context

35:9 No lions will be there,

no ferocious wild animals will be on it 1 

they will not be found there.

Those delivered from bondage will travel on it,

35:10 those whom the Lord has ransomed will return that way. 2 

They will enter Zion with a happy shout.

Unending joy will crown them, 3 

happiness and joy will overwhelm 4  them;

grief and suffering will disappear. 5 

1 tn Heb “will go up on it”; TEV “will pass that way.”

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

3 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.

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

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