Isaiah 49:6

Context

49:6 he says, “Is it too insignificant a task for you to be my servant,

to reestablish the tribes of Jacob,

and restore the remnant 1  of Israel? 2 

I will make you a light to the nations, 3 

so you can bring 4  my deliverance to the remote regions of the earth.”

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 5  guardians;

their princesses will nurse your children. 6 

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

and they will lick the dirt on 7  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 “the protected [or “preserved”] ones.”

2 sn The question is purely rhetorical; it does not imply that the servant was dissatisfied with his commission or that he minimized the restoration of Israel.

3 tn See the note at 42:6.

4 tn Heb “be” (so KJV, ASV); CEV “you must take.”

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

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

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