Isaiah 51:17-20

Context

51:17 Wake up! Wake up!

Get up, O Jerusalem!

You drank from the cup the Lord passed to you,

which was full of his anger! 1 

You drained dry

the goblet full of intoxicating wine. 2 

51:18 There was no one to lead her

among all the children she bore;

there was no one to take her by the hand

among all the children she raised.

51:19 These double disasters confronted you.

But who feels sorry for you?

Destruction and devastation,

famine and sword.

But who consoles you? 3 

51:20 Your children faint;

they lie at the head of every street

like an antelope in a snare.

They are left in a stupor by the Lord’s anger,

by the battle cry of your God. 4 

1 tn Heb “[you] who have drunk from the hand of the Lord the cup of his anger.”

2 tn Heb “the goblet, the cup [that causes] staggering, you drank, you drained.”

3 tc The Hebrew text has אֲנַחֲמֵךְ (’anakhamekh), a first person form, but the Qumran scroll 1QIsaa reads correctly יִנַחֲמֵךְ (yinakhamekh), a third person form.

4 tn Heb “those who are full of the anger of the Lord, the shout [or “rebuke”] of your God.”
