Isaiah 43:25-27 New English Translation (NET Bible)

25 I, I am the one who blots out your rebellious deeds for my sake;
your sins I do not remember.
26 Remind me of what happened. Let’s debate!
You, prove to me that you are right![a]
27 The father of your nation[b] sinned;
your spokesmen[c] rebelled against me.

Footnotes:

  1. Isaiah 43:26 tn Heb “you, tell in order that you may be right”; NAB “prove your innocence.”
  2. Isaiah 43:27 tn Heb “your first father.” This could refer to Abraham (see 51:2), but elsewhere in Isaiah he does not appear in a negative light (see 29:22; 41:8; 63:16). A more likely candidate is Jacob/Israel, also referred to as the nation’s “father” elsewhere (see 58:14; 63:16).
  3. Isaiah 43:27 tn On the meaning of the term לִיץ (lits), see HALOT 590 s.v. מֵלִיץ. This may refer to the nation’s prophets, priests, and/or kings.
