Isaiah 43:3

Context

43:3 For I am the Lord your God,

the Holy One of Israel, 1  your deliverer.

I have handed over Egypt as a ransom price,

Ethiopia and Seba 2  in place of you.

Isaiah 45:14

Context
The Lord is the Nations’ Only Hope

45:14 This is what the Lord says:

“The profit 3  of Egypt and the revenue 4  of Ethiopia,

along with the Sabeans, those tall men,

will be brought to you 5  and become yours.

They will walk behind you, coming along in chains. 6 

They will bow down to you

and pray to you: 7 

‘Truly God is with 8  you; he has no peer; 9 

there is no other God!’”

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

2 sn Seba is not the same as Sheba in southern Arabia; cf. Gen 1:10; 1 Chr 1:9.

3 tn Heb “labor,” which stands metonymically for the fruits of labor, either “monetary profit,” or “products.”

4 tn Or perhaps, “merchandise” (so KJV, NASB, NIV, NRSV); NAB “the gain of Ethiopia”; CEV “the treasures of Ethiopia.”

5 tn Heb “they will pass over to you”; NASB, NIV “will come over to you”; CEV “will belong to you.”

6 sn Restored Israel is depicted here in typical ancient Near Eastern fashion as an imperial power that receives riches and slaves as tribute.

7 sn Israel’s vassals are portrayed as so intimidated and awed that they treat Israel as an intermediary to God or sub-deity.

8 tn Or perhaps, “among.” Cf. KJV, ASV “Surely God is in thee.”

9 tn Heb “there is no other” (so NIV, NRSV). The same phrase occurs at the end of v. 18, in v. 21, and at the end of v. 22.
