Isaiah 58:2-3

Context

58:2 They seek me day after day;

they want to know my requirements, 1 

like a nation that does what is right

and does not reject the law of their God.

They ask me for just decrees;

they want to be near God.

58:3 They lament, 2  ‘Why don’t you notice when we fast?

Why don’t you pay attention when we humble ourselves?’

Look, at the same time you fast, you satisfy your selfish desires, 3 

you oppress your workers. 4 

1 tn Heb “ways” (so KJV, NAB, NASB, NIV, NRSV, TEV); NLT “my laws.”

2 tn The words “they lament” are supplied in the translation for clarification.

3 tn Heb “you find pleasure”; NASB “you find your desire.”

4 tn Or perhaps, “debtors.” See HALOT 865 s.v. * עָצֵב.
