Isaiah 30:9-11


30:9 For these are rebellious people –

they are lying children,

children unwilling to obey the Lord’s law. 1 

30:10 They 2  say to the visionaries, “See no more visions!”

and to the seers, “Don’t relate messages to us about what is right! 3 

Tell us nice things,

relate deceptive messages. 4 

30:11 Turn aside from the way,

stray off the path. 5 

Remove from our presence the Holy One of Israel.” 6 

1 tn Or perhaps, “instruction” (so NASB, NIV, NRSV); NCV, TEV “teachings.”

2 tn Heb “who” (so NASB, NRSV). A new sentence was started here in the translation for stylistic reasons.

3 tn Heb “Do not see for us right things.”

4 tn Heb “Tell us smooth things, see deceptive things.”

5 sn The imagery refers to the way or path of truth, as revealed by God to the prophet.

6 sn See the note on the phrase “the Holy One of Israel” in 1:4.
