Isaiah 41:8

The Lord Encourages His People

41:8 “You, my servant Israel,

Jacob whom I have chosen,

offspring of Abraham my friend, 1 

Isaiah 51:2


51:2 Look at Abraham, your father,

and Sarah, who gave you birth. 2 

When I summoned him, he was a lone individual, 3 

but I blessed him 4  and gave him numerous descendants. 5 

1 tn Or perhaps, “covenantal partner” (see 1 Kgs 5:15 HT [5:1 ET]; 2 Chr 20:7).

2 sn Although Abraham and Sarah are distant ancestors of the people the prophet is addressing, they are spoken of as the immediate parents.

3 tn Heb “one”; NLT “was alone”; TEV “was childless.”

4 tn “Bless” may here carry the sense of “endue with potency, reproductive power.” See Gen 1:28.

5 tn Heb “and I made him numerous.”
