Isaiah 66:5-6

Context

66:5 Hear the word of the Lord,

you who respect what he has to say! 1 

Your countrymen, 2  who hate you

and exclude you, supposedly for the sake of my name,

say, “May the Lord be glorified,

then we will witness your joy.” 3 

But they will be put to shame.

66:6 The sound of battle comes from the city;

the sound comes from the temple!

It is the sound of the Lord paying back his enemies.

1 tn Heb “who tremble at his word.”

2 tn Heb “brothers” (so NASB, NIV); NRSV “Your own people”; NLT “Your close relatives.”

3 tn Or “so that we might witness your joy.” The point of this statement is unclear.
