Isaiah 33:11-12

33:11 You conceive straw,

you give birth to chaff;

your breath is a fire that destroys you.

33:12 The nations will be burned to ashes;

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

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.

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

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