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

Chapter 4

Seven women will take hold of one man[a]
    on that day, saying:
“We will eat our own food
    and wear our own clothing;
Only let your name be given us,
    put an end to our disgrace!”

Footnotes:

  1. 4:1 Seven women…one man: deportation (cf. note on 3:1–12) would result in a disproportion of the sexes and leave the female population without enough male partners. The women are willing to marry, not for support, but to avoid disgrace.
