Isaiah 51:3

Context

51:3 Certainly the Lord will console Zion;

he will console all her ruins.

He will make her wilderness like Eden,

her desert like the Garden of the Lord.

Happiness and joy will be restored to 1  her,

thanksgiving and the sound of music.

Isaiah 51:12

Context

51:12 “I, I am the one who consoles you. 2 

Why are you afraid of mortal men,

of mere human beings who are as short-lived as grass? 3 

1 tn Heb “found in” (so NAB, NASB, NIV, NRSV).

2 tc The plural suffix should probably be emended to the second masculine singular (which is used in v. 13). The final mem (ם) is probably dittographic; note the mem at the beginning of the next word.

3 tn Heb “Who are you that you are afraid of man who dies, and of the son of man who [as] grass is given up?” The feminine singular forms should probably be emended to the masculine singular (see v. 13). They have probably been influenced by the construction אַתְּ־הִיא (’at-hi’) in vv. 9-10.
