Isaiah 3:25-26


3:25 Your 1  men will fall by the sword,

your strong men will die in battle. 2 

3:26 Her gates will mourn and lament;

deprived of her people, she will sit on the ground. 3 

1 tn The pronoun is feminine singular, suggesting personified Zion, as representative of its women, is the addressee. The reference to “her gates’ in v. 26 makes this identification almost certain.

2 tn Heb “your strength in battle.” The verb in the first clause provides the verbal idea for the second clause.

3 tn Heb “she will be empty, on the ground she will sit.” Jerusalem is personified as a destitute woman who sits mourning the empty city.
