Isaiah 61:7-8

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.

61:8 For I, the Lord, love justice

and hate robbery and sin.

I will repay them because of my faithfulness; 4 

I will make a permanent covenant with them.

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 tn Heb “in faithfulness”; NASB, NRSV, NLT “faithfully.”
