Isaiah 29:20-21


29:20 For tyrants will disappear,

those who taunt will vanish,

and all those who love to do wrong will be eliminated 1 

29:21 those who bear false testimony against a person, 2 

who entrap the one who arbitrates at the city gate 3 

and deprive the innocent of justice by making false charges. 4 

1 tn Heb “and all the watchers of wrong will be cut off.”

2 tn Heb “the ones who make a man a sinner with a word.” The Hiphil of חָטָא (khata’) here has a delocutive sense: “declare a man sinful/guilty.”

3 sn Legal disputes were resolved at the city gate, where the town elders met. See Amos 5:10.

4 tn Heb “and deprive by emptiness the innocent.”
