Isaiah 29:1-4New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Chapter 29

Judgment and Deliverance of Jerusalem

Ah! Ariel, Ariel,[a]
    city where David encamped!
Let year follow year,
    and feast follow feast,
But I will bring distress upon Ariel,
    and there will be mourning and moaning.
You shall be to me like Ariel:
    I will encamp like David against you;
I will circle you with outposts
    and set up siege works against you.
You shall speak from beneath the earth,
    and from the dust below, your words shall come.
Your voice shall be that of a ghost from the earth,
    and your words shall whisper from the dust.

Footnotes:

  1. 29:1–2 Ariel: a poetic name for Jerusalem. It has been variously interpreted to mean “lion of God,” “altar hearth of God” (Ez 43:15–16), “city of God,” or “foundation of God.” In v. 2 the term refers to “altar hearth,” i.e., a place of burning for its people (cf. 30:33; 31:9). God will attack Jerusalem, as David did long ago.
