Isaiah 49:22-23

Context

49:22 This is what the sovereign Lord says:

“Look I will raise my hand to the nations;

I will raise my signal flag to the peoples.

They will bring your sons in their arms

and carry your daughters on their shoulders.

49:23 Kings will be your children’s 1  guardians;

their princesses will nurse your children. 2 

With their faces to the ground they will bow down to you

and they will lick the dirt on 3  your feet.

Then you will recognize that I am the Lord;

those who wait patiently for me are not put to shame.

1 tn Heb “your,” but Zion here stands by metonymy for her children (see v. 22b).

2 tn Heb “you.” See the preceding note.

3 tn Or “at your feet” (NAB, NIV); NLT “from your feet.”
