Isaiah 35:9-10 New English Translation (NET Bible)

No lions will be there,
no ferocious wild animals will be on it[a]
they will not be found there.
Those delivered from bondage will travel on it,
10 those whom the Lord has ransomed will return that way.[b]
They will enter Zion with a happy shout.
Unending joy will crown them,[c]
happiness and joy will overwhelm[d] them;
grief and suffering will disappear.[e]


  1. Isaiah 35:9 tn Heb “will go up on it”; TEV “will pass that way.”
  2. Isaiah 35:10 tn Heb “and the redeemed will walk, the ransomed of the Lord will return.”
  3. Isaiah 35:10 tn Heb “[will be] on their head[s].” “Joy” may be likened here to a crown (cf. 2 Sam 1:10). The statement may also be an ironic twist on the idiom “earth/dust on the head” (cf. 2 Sam 1:2; 13:19; 15:32; Job 2:12), referring to a mourning practice.
  4. Isaiah 35:10 tn Heb “will overtake” (NIV); NLT “they will be overcome with.”
  5. Isaiah 35:10 tn Heb “grief and groaning will flee”; KJV “sorrow and sighing shall flee away.”
