Isaiah 3:2-3

Context

3:2 the mighty men and warriors,

judges and prophets,

omen readers and leaders, 1 

3:3 captains of groups of fifty,

the respected citizens, 2 

advisers and those skilled in magical arts, 3 

and those who know incantations.

1 tn Heb “elder” (so ASV, NAB, NIV, NRSV); NCV “older leaders.”

2 tn Heb “the ones lifted up with respect to the face.” For another example of the Hebrew idiom, see 2 Kgs 5:1.

3 tn Heb “and the wise with respect to magic.” On the meaning of חֲרָשִׁים (kharashim, “magic”), see HALOT 358 s.v. III חרשׁ. Some understand here a homonym, meaning “craftsmen.” In this case, one could translate, “skilled craftsmen” (cf. NIV, NASB).
