Isaiah 5:29-30

Context

5:29 Their roar is like a lion’s;

they roar like young lions.

They growl and seize their prey;

they drag it away and no one can come to the rescue.

5:30 At that time 1  they will growl over their prey, 2 

it will sound like sea waves crashing against rocks. 3 

One will look out over the land and see the darkness of disaster,

clouds will turn the light into darkness. 4 

1 tn Or “in that day” (KJV).

2 tn Heb “over it”; the referent (the prey) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

3 tn Heb “like the growling of the sea.”

4 tn Heb “and one will gaze toward the land, and look, darkness of distress, and light will grow dark by its [the land’s?] clouds.”

sn The motif of light turning to darkness is ironic when compared to v. 20. There the sinners turn light (= moral/ethical good) to darkness (= moral/ethical evil). Now ironically the Lord will turn light (= the sinners’ sphere of existence and life) into darkness (= the judgment and death).
