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 Lord. This reading is followed by KJV, ASV, NAB (which renders it as first person), and NASB. The LXX reads “they,” referring to the Israelites themselves, a reading followed by many modern English versions (e.g., NIV, NRSV, TEV, NLT).
3 tn Heb “scepter,” referring by metonymy to the dominating rule of Egypt (cf. NLT).
