Isaiah 44:23

Context

44:23 Shout for joy, O sky, for the Lord intervenes; 1 

shout out, you subterranean regions 2  of the earth.

O mountains, give a joyful shout;

you too, O forest and all your trees! 3 

For the Lord protects 4  Jacob;

he reveals his splendor through Israel. 5 

1 tn Heb “acts”; NASB, NRSV “has done it”; NLT “has done this wondrous thing.”

2 tn Heb “lower regions.” This refers to Sheol and forms a merism with “sky” in the previous line. See Pss 63:9; 71:20.

3 tn Heb “O forest and all the trees in it”; NASB, NRSV “and every tree in it.”

4 tn Heb “redeems.” See the note at 41:14.

5 tn That is, by delivering Israel. Cf. NCV “showed his glory when he saved Israel”; TEV “has shown his greatness by saving his people Israel.”
