Isaiah 3:24

Context

3:24 A putrid stench will replace the smell of spices, 1 

a rope will replace a belt,

baldness will replace braided locks of hair,

a sackcloth garment will replace a fine robe,

and a prisoner’s brand will replace beauty.

Isaiah 15:2

Context

15:2 They went up to the temple, 2 

the people of Dibon went up to the high places to lament. 3 

Because of what happened to Nebo and Medeba, 4  Moab wails.

Every head is shaved bare,

every beard is trimmed off. 5 

1 tn Heb “and it will be in place of spices there will be a stench.” The nouns for “spices” and “stench” are right next to each other in the MT for emphatic contrast. The verb that introduces this verse serves as a discourse particle and is untranslated; see note on “in the future” in 2:2.

2 tn Heb “house.”

3 tn Heb “even Dibon [to] the high places to weep.” The verb “went up” does double duty in the parallel structure.

4 tn Heb “over [or “for”] Nebo and over [or “for”] Medeba.”

5 sn Shaving the head and beard were outward signs of mourning and grief.
