Isaiah 66:10-12

Context

66:10 Be happy for Jerusalem

and rejoice with her, all you who love her!

Share in her great joy,

all you who have mourned over her!

66:11 For 1  you will nurse from her satisfying breasts and be nourished; 2 

you will feed with joy from her milk-filled breasts. 3 

66:12 For this is what the Lord says:

“Look, I am ready to extend to her prosperity that will flow like a river,

the riches of nations will flow into her like a stream that floods its banks. 4 

You will nurse from her breast 5  and be carried at her side;

you will play on her knees.

1 tn Or “in order that”; ASV, NRSV “that.”

2 tn Heb “you will suck and be satisfied, from her comforting breast.”

3 tn Heb “you will slurp and refresh yourselves from her heavy breast.”

sn Zion’s residents will benefit from and enjoy her great material prosperity. See v. 12.

4 tn Heb “Look, I am ready to extend to her like a river prosperity [or “peace”], and like an overflowing stream, the riches of nations.”

5 tn The words “from her breast” are supplied in the translation for clarification (see v. 11).
