For this is what the Lord has told me: “I will wait 1  and watch from my place, like scorching heat produced by the sunlight, 2  like a cloud of mist 3  in the heat 4  of harvest.” 5 

NET © Notes

tn Or “be quiet, inactive”; NIV “will remain quiet.”

tn Heb “like the glowing heat because of light.” The precise meaning of the line is uncertain.

tn Heb “a cloud of dew,” or “a cloud of light rain.”

tc Some medieval Hebrew mss, with support from the LXX, Syriac Peshitta, and Latin Vulgate, read “the day.”

sn It is unclear how the comparisons in v. 4b relate to the preceding statement. How is waiting and watching similar to heat or a cloud? For a discussion of interpretive options, see J. N. Oswalt, Isaiah (NICOT), 1:362.
