Isaiah 58:6

Context

58:6 No, this is the kind of fast I want. 1 

I want you 2  to remove the sinful chains,

to tear away the ropes of the burdensome yoke,

to set free the oppressed, 3 

and to break every burdensome yoke.

Isaiah 58:9

Context

58:9 Then you will call out, and the Lord will respond;

you will cry out, and he will reply, ‘Here I am.’

You must 4  remove the burdensome yoke from among you

and stop pointing fingers and speaking sinfully.

1 tn Heb “Is this not a fast I choose?” “No” is supplied in the translation for clarification.

2 tn The words “I want you” are supplied in the translation for stylistic reasons.

3 tn Heb “crushed.”

4 tn Heb “if you.” In the Hebrew text vv. 9b-10 are one long conditional sentence. The protasis (“if” clauses appear in vv. 9b-10a), with the apodosis (“then” clause) appearing in v. 10b.
