Isaiah 61:7

Context

61:7 Instead of shame, you will get a double portion; 1 

instead of humiliation, they will rejoice over the land they receive. 2 

Yes, 3  they will possess a double portion in their land

and experience lasting joy.

Isaiah 61:10

Context

61:10 I 4  will greatly rejoice 5  in the Lord;

I will be overjoyed because of my God. 6 

For he clothes me in garments of deliverance;

he puts on me a robe symbolizing vindication. 7 

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. 8 

1 tn Heb “instead of your shame, a double portion.”

2 tn Heb “and [instead of] humiliation they will rejoice [over] their portion.” The term תָחָת (takhat, “instead of”) is understood by ellipsis (note the preceding line).

3 tn Heb “therefore” (so KJV, NASB); NIV “and so.”

4 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.

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

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

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

8 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.
