Isaiah 54:9-10

Context

54:9 “As far as I am concerned, this is like in Noah’s time, 1 

when I vowed that the waters of Noah’s flood 2  would never again cover the earth.

In the same way I have vowed that I will not be angry at you or shout at you.

54:10 Even if the mountains are removed

and the hills displaced,

my devotion will not be removed from you,

nor will my covenant of friendship 3  be displaced,”

says the Lord, the one who has compassion on you.

1 tc The Hebrew text reads literally, “For [or “indeed”] the waters of Noah [is] this to me.” כִּי־מֵי (ki-me, “for the waters of”) should be emended to כְּמֵי (kÿmey, “like the days of”), which is supported by the Qumran scroll 1QIsaa and all the ancient versions except LXX.

2 tn Heb “the waters of Noah” (so NAB, NIV, NRSV).

3 tn Heb “peace” (so many English versions); NLT “of blessing.”
