Isaiah 54:11-12

Context

54:11 “O afflicted one, driven away, 1  and unconsoled!

Look, I am about to set your stones in antimony

and I lay your foundation with lapis-lazuli.

54:12 I will make your pinnacles out of gems, 2 

your gates out of beryl, 3 

and your outer wall 4  out of beautiful 5  stones.

1 tn Or, more literally, “windblown, storm tossed.”

2 tn Perhaps, “rubies” (so ASV, NAB, NIV, NRSV, NLT).

3 tn On the meaning of אֶקְדָּח (’eqdakh), which occurs only here, see HALOT 82 s.v.

4 tn Heb “border” (so ASV); NASB “your entire wall.”

5 tn Heb “delightful”; KJV “pleasant.”
