Isaiah 37:22

Context
37:22 this is what the Lord says about him: 1 

“The virgin daughter Zion 2 

despises you – she makes fun of you;

daughter Jerusalem

shakes her head after you. 3 

1 tn Heb “this is the word which the Lord has spoken about him.”

2 sn Zion (Jerusalem) is pictured here as a young, vulnerable daughter whose purity is being threatened by the would-be Assyrian rapist. The personification hints at the reality which the young girls of the city would face if the Assyrians conquer it.

3 sn Shaking the head was a mocking gesture of derision.
