Isaiah 25:8-9


25:8 he will swallow up death permanently. 1 

The sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears from every face,

and remove his people’s disgrace from all the earth.

Indeed, the Lord has announced it! 2 

25:9 At that time they will say, 3 

“Look, here 4  is our God!

We waited for him and he delivered us.

Here 5  is the Lord! We waited for him.

Let’s rejoice and celebrate his deliverance!”

1 sn The image of the Lord “swallowing” death would be especially powerful, for death was viewed in Canaanite mythology and culture as a hungry enemy that swallows its victims. See the note at 5:14.

2 tn Heb “has spoken” (so NAB, NASB, NIV, NRSV, NLT).

3 tn Heb “and one will say in that day.”

4 tn Heb “this [one].”

5 tn Heb “this [one].”
