Isaiah 51:3

Context

51:3 Certainly the Lord will console Zion;

he will console all her ruins.

He will make her wilderness like Eden,

her desert like the Garden of the Lord.

Happiness and joy will be restored to 1  her,

thanksgiving and the sound of music.

Isaiah 51:11

Context

51:11 Those whom the Lord has ransomed will return;

they will enter Zion with a happy shout.

Unending joy will crown them, 2 

happiness and joy will overwhelm 3  them;

grief and suffering will disappear. 4 

1 tn Heb “found in” (so NAB, NASB, NIV, NRSV).

2 tn Heb “[will be] on their head[s].” “Joy” may be likened here to a crown (cf. 2 Sam 1:10). The statement may also be an ironic twist on the idiom “earth/dust on the head” (cf. 2 Sam 1:2; 13:19; 15:32; Job 2:12), referring to a mourning practice.

3 tn Heb “overtake” (so NIV); NASB “they will obtain.”

4 tn Heb “grief and groaning will flee.”
