Isaiah 51:2

Context

51:2 Look at Abraham, your father,

and Sarah, who gave you birth. 1 

When I summoned him, he was a lone individual, 2 

but I blessed him 3  and gave him numerous descendants. 4 

1 sn Although Abraham and Sarah are distant ancestors of the people the prophet is addressing, they are spoken of as the immediate parents.

2 tn Heb “one”; NLT “was alone”; TEV “was childless.”

3 tn “Bless” may here carry the sense of “endue with potency, reproductive power.” See Gen 1:28.

4 tn Heb “and I made him numerous.”
