Isaiah 43:15

43:15 I am the Lord, your Holy One,

the one who created Israel, your king.”

Isaiah 65:17

65:17 For look, I am ready to create

new heavens and a new earth!

The former ones will not be remembered;

no one will think about them anymore.


sn See the note on the phrase “the Holy One of Israel” in 1:4.

sn This hyperbolic statement likens the coming transformation of Jerusalem (see vv. 18-19) to a new creation of the cosmos.

tn Or perhaps, “the former things” (so ASV, NASB, NIV, NRSV); TEV “The events of the past.”

tn Heb “and they will not come up on the mind.”
