Isaiah 33:11-12


33:11 You conceive straw, 1 

you give birth to chaff;

your breath is a fire that destroys you. 2 

33:12 The nations will be burned to ashes; 3 

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

1 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.

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

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