Isaiah 61:10

Context

61:10 I 1  will greatly rejoice 2  in the Lord;

I will be overjoyed because of my God. 3 

For he clothes me in garments of deliverance;

he puts on me a robe symbolizing vindication. 4 

I look like a bridegroom when he wears a turban as a priest would;

I look like a bride when she puts on her jewelry. 5 

Isaiah 62:1

Context
The Lord Takes Delight in Zion

62:1 “For the sake of Zion I will not be silent;

for the sake of Jerusalem 6  I will not be quiet,

until her vindication shines brightly 7 

and her deliverance burns like a torch.”

1 sn The speaker in vv. 10-11 is not identified, but it is likely that the personified nation (or perhaps Zion) responds here to the Lord’s promise of restoration.

2 tn The infinitive absolute appears before the finite verb for emphasis.

3 tn Heb “my being is happy in my God”; NAB “in my God is the joy of my soul.”

4 tn Heb “robe of vindication”; KJV, NASB, NIV, NRSV “robe of righteousness.”

5 tn Heb “like a bridegroom [who] acts like a priest [by wearing] a turban, and like a bride [who] wears her jewelry.” The words “I look” are supplied for stylistic reasons and clarification.
