Isaiah 65:9-10

Context

65:9 I will bring forth descendants from Jacob,

and from Judah people to take possession of my mountains.

My chosen ones will take possession of the land; 1 

my servants will live there.

65:10 Sharon 2  will become a pasture for sheep,

and the Valley of Achor 3  a place where cattle graze; 4 

they will belong to my people, who seek me. 5 

1 tn Heb “it.” The third feminine singular pronominal suffix probably refers to the land which contains the aforementioned mountains.

2 sn Sharon was a plain located to the west, along the Mediterranean coast north of Joppa and south of Carmel.

3 sn The Valley of Achor (“Achor” means “trouble” in Hebrew) was the site of Achan’s execution. It was located to the east, near Jericho.

4 tn Heb “a resting place for cattle”; NASB, NIV “for herds.”

5 tn Heb “for my people who seek me.”
