Isaiah 30:32-33 The Passion Translation (TPT)

32 Every stroke of Yahweh’s punishing rod[a]
    will be to the sound of cymbals and strumming harps.
    God himself fights them in battle with dancing![b]
33 From long ago, the king’s fiery burial place has been prepared,
    stacked high with plenty of firewood to fuel the flame.[c]
    Yahweh’s breath, like a stream of sulfur, kindles it.


  1. Isaiah 30:32 Or “established (destined for punishment) rod.”
  2. Isaiah 30:32 As translated by some scholars. The Hebrew word uvemilkhamot (“with battles of”) is emended by some to read uvimkholot (“with dancing”). The majority view of the Hebrew text is “battles of brandishing (uplifted weapons/arms).” This “punishing rod” will fall on the spiritual forces of darkness as we celebrate and dance in the victory of the risen Christ.
  3. Isaiah 30:33 Although the Hebrew of this verse is uncertain, the implication is that the king of Assyria will be thrown into fire. There is also the hint of our eternal foe, Satan, the king of darkness, being cast into the lake of fire. See Rev. 20:10.
