Isaiah 45:22-24


45:22 Turn to me so you can be delivered, 1 

all you who live in the earth’s remote regions!

For I am God, and I have no peer.

45:23 I solemnly make this oath 2 

what I say is true and reliable: 3 

‘Surely every knee will bow to me,

every tongue will solemnly affirm; 4 

45:24 they will say about me,

“Yes, the Lord is a powerful deliverer.”’” 5 

All who are angry at him will cower before him. 6 

1 tn The Niphal imperative with prefixed vav (ו) indicates purpose after the preceding imperative. The Niphal probably has a tolerative sense, “allow yourselves to be delivered, accept help.”

2 tn Heb “I swear by myself”; KJV, NASB “have sworn.”

3 tn Heb “a word goes out from my mouth [in] truth and will not return.”

4 tn Heb “swear” (so KJV, NAB, NIV, NRSV); NLT “confess allegiance.”

5 tn Heb “‘Yes, in the Lord,’ one says about me, ‘is deliverance and strength.’”

6 tn Heb “will come to him and be ashamed.”
