Isaiah 9:13-14


9:13 The people did not return to the one who struck them,

they did not seek reconciliation 1  with the Lord who commands armies.

9:14 So the Lord cut off Israel’s head and tail,

both the shoots and stalk 2  in one day.

1 tn This verse describes the people’s response to the judgment described in vv. 11-12. The perfects are understood as indicating simple past.

2 sn The metaphor in this line is that of a reed being cut down.
