Isaiah 65:9

Context

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; 1 

my servants will live there.

Isaiah 65:22

Context

65:22 No longer will they build a house only to have another live in it, 2 

or plant a vineyard only to have another eat its fruit, 3 

for my people will live as long as trees, 4 

and my chosen ones will enjoy to the fullest what they have produced. 5 

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

2 tn Heb “they will not build, and another live [in it].”

3 tn Heb “they will not plant, and another eat.”

4 tn Heb “for like the days of the tree [will be] the days of my people.”

5 tn Heb “the work of their hands” (so KJV, NASB, NIV, NRSV); NLT “their hard-won gains.”
