Isaiah 45:8


45:8 O sky, rain down from above!

Let the clouds send down showers 1  of deliverance!

Let the earth absorb it 2  so salvation may grow, 3 

and deliverance may sprout up 4  along with it.

I, the Lord, create it. 5 

Isaiah 51:5


51:5 I am ready to vindicate, 6 

I am ready to deliver, 7 

I will establish justice among the nations. 8 

The coastlands 9  wait patiently for me;

they wait in anticipation for the revelation of my power. 10 

1 tn Heb “let the clouds drip with”; KJV “let the skies pour down.”

2 tn Heb “open up” (so NASB); NIV, NLT “open wide.”

3 tc The plural verb should be emended to a singular form. The vav (ו) ending is probably virtually dittographic (note the yod at the beginning of the following word).

4 tc The Hiphil verb form (תַצְמִיחַ, tatsmiakh) should probably be emended to a Qal (תִצְמַח, titsmakh). The יח sequence at the end of the form is probably due to dittography (note the following יַחַד, yakhad).

5 tn The masculine singular pronominal suffix probably refers back to יָשַׁע (yasha’, “salvation”).

6 tn Heb “my righteousness [or “vindication”] is near.”

7 tn Heb “my deliverance goes forth.”

8 tn Heb “and my arms will judge [on behalf of] nations.”

9 tn Or “islands” (NIV); TEV “Distant lands.”

10 tn Heb “for my arm” (so NIV, NRSV).
