Isaiah 5:24

Context

5:24 Therefore, as flaming fire 1  devours straw,

and dry grass disintegrates in the flames,

so their root will rot,

and their flower will blow away like dust. 2 

For they have rejected the law of the Lord who commands armies,

they have spurned the commands 3  of the Holy One of Israel. 4 

1 tn Heb “a tongue of fire” (so NASB), referring to a tongue-shaped flame.

2 sn They are compared to a flowering plant that withers quickly in a hot, arid climate.

3 tn Heb “the word.”

4 sn See the note on the phrase “the Holy One of Israel” in 1:4.
