Isaiah 66:5-6

66:5 Hear the word of the Lord,

you who respect what he has to say!

Your countrymen, 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.”

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.

tn Heb “who tremble at his word.”

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

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