Isaiah 66:1-2

Context

66:1 This is what the Lord says:

“The heavens are my throne

and the earth is my footstool.

Where then is the house you will build for me?

Where is the place where I will rest?

66:2 My hand made them; 1 

that is how they came to be,” 2  says the Lord.

I show special favor 3  to the humble and contrite,

who respect what I have to say. 4 

1 tn Heb “all these.” The phrase refers to the heavens and earth, mentioned in the previous verse.

2 tn Heb “and all these were.” Some prefer to emend וַיִּהְיוּ (vayyihyu, “and they were”) to וְלִי הָיוּ (vÿli hayu, “and to me they were”), i.e., “and they belong to me.”

3 tn Heb “and to this one I look” (KJV and NASB both similar).

4 tn Heb “to the humble and the lowly in spirit and the one who trembles at my words.”
