Isaiah 56:11-12


56:11 The dogs have big appetites;

they are never full. 1 

They are shepherds who have no understanding;

they all go their own way,

each one looking for monetary gain. 2 

56:12 Each one says, 3 

‘Come on, I’ll get some wine!

Let’s guzzle some beer!

Tomorrow will be just like today!

We’ll have everything we want!’ 4 

1 sn The phrase never full alludes to the greed of the leaders.

2 tn Heb “for his gain from his end.”

3 tn The words “each one says” are supplied in the translation for clarification.

4 tn Heb “great, [in] abundance, very much,” i.e., “very great indeed.” See HALOT 452 s.v. יֶתֶר.
