Isaiah 65:8-9

Context

65:8 This is what the Lord says:

“When 1  juice is discovered in a cluster of grapes,

someone says, ‘Don’t destroy it, for it contains juice.’ 2 

So I will do for the sake of my servants –

I will not destroy everyone. 3 

65:9 I will bring forth descendants from Jacob,

and from Judah people to take possession of my mountains.

My chosen ones will take possession of the land; 4 

my servants will live there.

1 tn Heb “just as.” In the Hebrew text the statement is one long sentence, “Just as…, so I will do….”

2 tn Heb “for a blessing is in it.”

3 tn Heb “by not destroying everyone.”

4 tn Heb “it.” The third feminine singular pronominal suffix probably refers to the land which contains the aforementioned mountains.
