Isaiah 54:7-8

Context

54:7 “For a short time I abandoned 1  you,

but with great compassion I will gather you.

54:8 In a burst 2  of anger I rejected you 3  momentarily,

but with lasting devotion I will have compassion on you,”

says your protector, 4  the Lord.

1 tn Or “forsook” (NASB).

2 tn According to BDB 1009 s.v. שֶׁטֶף the noun שֶׁצֶף here is an alternate form of שֶׁטֶף (shetef, “flood”). Some relate the word to an alleged Akkadian cognate meaning “strength.”

3 tn Heb “I hid my face from you.”

4 tn Or “redeemer.” See the note at 41:14.
