Isaiah 33:8

NET ©

Highways are empty, there are no travelers. Treaties are broken, witnesses are despised, human life is treated with disrespect.

NIV ©

The highways are deserted, no travellers are on the roads. The treaty is broken, its witnesses are despised, no-one is respected.

NASB ©

The highways are desolate, the traveler has ceased, He has broken the covenant, he has despised the cities, He has no regard for man.

NLT ©

Your roads are deserted; no one travels them anymore. The Assyrians have broken their peace pact and care nothing for the promises they made before witnesses. They have no respect for anyone.

MSG ©

The roads are empty--not a soul out on the streets. The peace treaty is broken, its conditions violated, its signers reviled.

BBE ©

The highways are waste, no man is journeying there: the agreement is broken, he has made sport of the towns, he has no thought for man.

NRSV ©

The highways are deserted, travelers have quit the road. The treaty is broken, its oaths are despised, its obligation is disregarded.

NKJV ©

The highways lie waste, The traveling man ceases. He has broken the covenant, He has despised the cities, He regards no man.

NET © Notes

tn Or “desolate” (NAB, NASB); NIV, NRSV, NLT “deserted.”

tn Heb “the one passing by on the road ceases.”

tn Heb “one breaks a treaty”; NAB “Covenants are broken.”

tc The Hebrew text reads literally, “he despises cities.” The term עָרִים (’arim, “cities”) is probably a corruption of an original עֵדִים (’edim, “[legal] witnesses”), a reading that is preserved in the Qumran scroll 1QIsaa. Confusion of dalet (ד) and resh (ר) is a well-attested scribal error.

tn Heb “he does not regard human beings.”
