1 tn Heb “and the redeemed will walk, the ransomed of the Lord will return.”
2 tn Heb “[will be] on their head[s].” “Joy” may be likened here to a crown (cf. 2 Sam 1:10). The statement may also be an ironic twist on the idiom “earth/dust on the head” (cf. 2 Sam 1:2; 13:19; 15:32; Job 2:12), referring to a mourning practice.
3 tn Heb “will overtake” (NIV); NLT “they will be overcome with.”
4 tn Heb “grief and groaning will flee”; KJV “sorrow and sighing shall flee away.”
