Isaiah 61:9-10

Context

61:9 Their descendants will be known among the nations,

their offspring among the peoples.

All who see them will recognize that

the Lord has blessed them.” 1 

61:10 I 2  will greatly rejoice 3  in the Lord;

I will be overjoyed because of my God. 4 

For he clothes me in garments of deliverance;

he puts on me a robe symbolizing vindication. 5 

I look like a bridegroom when he wears a turban as a priest would;

I look like a bride when she puts on her jewelry. 6 

1 tn Heb “all who see them will recognize them, that they [are] descendants [whom] the Lord has blessed.”

2 sn The speaker in vv. 10-11 is not identified, but it is likely that the personified nation (or perhaps Zion) responds here to the Lord’s promise of restoration.

3 tn The infinitive absolute appears before the finite verb for emphasis.

4 tn Heb “my being is happy in my God”; NAB “in my God is the joy of my soul.”

5 tn Heb “robe of vindication”; KJV, NASB, NIV, NRSV “robe of righteousness.”

6 tn Heb “like a bridegroom [who] acts like a priest [by wearing] a turban, and like a bride [who] wears her jewelry.” The words “I look” are supplied for stylistic reasons and clarification.
