Isaiah 47:7-8


47:7 You said,

‘I will rule forever as permanent queen!’ 1 

You did not think about these things; 2 

you did not consider how it would turn out. 3 

47:8 So now, listen to this,

O one who lives so lavishly, 4 

who lives securely,

who says to herself, 5 

‘I am unique! No one can compare to me! 6 

I will never have to live as a widow;

I will never lose my children.’ 7 

1 tn Heb “Forever I [will be] permanent queen”; NIV “the eternal queen”; CEV “queen forever.”

2 tn Heb “you did not set these things upon your heart [or “mind”].”

3 tn Heb “you did not remember its outcome”; NAB “you disregarded their outcome.”

4 tn Or perhaps, “voluptuous one” (NAB); NAB “you sensual one”; NLT “You are a pleasure-crazy kingdom.”

5 tn Heb “the one who says in her heart.”

6 tn Heb “I [am], and besides me there is no other.” See Zeph 2:15.

7 tn Heb “I will not live [as] a widow, and I will not know loss of children.”
