Isaiah 3:3


3:3 captains of groups of fifty,

the respected citizens, 1 

advisers and those skilled in magical arts, 2 

and those who know incantations.

Isaiah 47:10


47:10 You were complacent in your evil deeds; 3 

you thought, 4  ‘No one sees me.’

Your self-professed 5  wisdom and knowledge lead you astray,

when you say, ‘I am unique! No one can compare to me!’ 6 

Isaiah 47:13


47:13 You are tired out from listening to so much advice. 7 

Let them take their stand –

the ones who see omens in the sky,

who gaze at the stars,

who make monthly predictions –

let them rescue you from the disaster that is about to overtake you! 8 

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

2 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).

3 tn Heb “you trusted in your evil”; KJV, NAB, NASB, NIV, NRSV “wickedness.”

4 tn Or “said”; NAB “said to yourself”’ NASB “said in your heart.”

5 tn The words “self-professed” are supplied in the translation for clarification.

6 tn See the note at v. 8.

7 tn Heb “you are tired because of the abundance of your advice.”

8 tn Heb “let them stand and rescue you – the ones who see omens in the sky, who gaze at the stars, who make known by months – from those things which are coming upon you.”
