10:10 I will bring them back from Egypt and gather them from Assyria. 1 I will bring them to the lands of Gilead and Lebanon, for there will not be enough room for them in their own land. 10:11 The Lord 2 will cross the sea of storms and will calm its turbulence. The depths of the Nile will dry up, the pride of Assyria will be humbled, and the domination 3 of Egypt will be no more.
1 sn I will bring them back from Egypt…from Assyria. The gathering of God’s people to their land in eschatological times will be like a reenactment of the exodus, but this time they will come from all over the world (cf. Isa 40:3-5; 43:1-7, 14-21; 48:20-22; 51:9-11).
2 tn Heb “he,” in which case the referent is the
3 tn Heb “scepter,” referring by metonymy to the dominating rule of Egypt (cf. NLT).
