Isaiah 33:10-12

Context

33:10 “Now I will rise up,” says the Lord.

“Now I will exalt myself;

now I will magnify myself. 1 

33:11 You conceive straw, 2 

you give birth to chaff;

your breath is a fire that destroys you. 3 

33:12 The nations will be burned to ashes; 4 

like thorn bushes that have been cut down, they will be set on fire.

1 tn Or “lift myself up” (KJV); NLT “show my power and might.”

2 tn The second person verb and pronominal forms in this verse are plural. The hostile nations are the addressed, as the next verse makes clear.

3 sn The hostile nations’ plans to destroy God’s people will come to nothing; their hostility will end up being self-destructive.

4 tn Heb “will be a burning to lime.” See Amos 2:1.
