Isaiah 49:12

Context

49:12 Look, they come from far away!

Look, some come from the north and west,

and others from the land of Sinim! 1 

Isaiah 49:20

Context

49:20 Yet the children born during your time of bereavement

will say within your hearing,

‘This place is too cramped for us, 2 

make room for us so we can live here.’ 3 

1 tc The MT reads “Sinim” here; the Dead Sea Scrolls read “Syene,” a location in Egypt associated with modern Aswan. A number of recent translations adopt this reading: “Syene” (NAB, NRSV); “Aswan” (NIV); “Egypt” (NLT).

sn The precise location of the land of Sinim is uncertain, but since the north and west are mentioned in the previous line, it was a probably located in the distant east or south.

2 tn Heb “me.” The singular is collective.

3 tn Heb “draw near to me so I can dwell.”
