Isaiah 30:6 New English Translation (NET Bible)

This is an oracle[a] about the animals in the Negev:
Through a land of distress and danger,
inhabited by lionesses and roaring lions,[b]
by snakes and darting adders,[c]
they transport their wealth on the backs of donkeys,
their riches on the humps of camels,
to a nation that cannot help them.[d]

Footnotes:

  1. Isaiah 30:6 tn See note at Isa 13:1.
  2. Isaiah 30:6 tc Heb “[a land of] a lioness and a lion, from them.” Some emend מֵהֶם (mehem, “from them”) to מֵהֵם (mehem), an otherwise unattested Hiphil participle from הָמַם (hamam, “move noisily”). Perhaps it would be better to take the initial mem (מ) as enclitic and emend the form to הֹמֶה (homeh), a Qal active participle from הָמָה (hamah, “to make a noise”); cf. J. N. Oswalt, Isaiah (NICOT), 1:542, n. 9.
  3. Isaiah 30:6 tn Heb “flying burning ones.” See the note at 14:29.
  4. Isaiah 30:6 sn This verse describes messengers from Judah transporting wealth to Egypt in order to buy Pharaoh’s protection through a treaty.
