Evangelical Heritage Version
12 until the Lord has removed the people far away,
and the abandoned places within the land are many.
13 If there is only a tenth left in it, that too will be burned in its turn.
Like a terebinth or an oak,
whose stump remains when it is cut down,
so the holy seed is its stump.[a]
- Isaiah 6:13 The last line is difficult, because the word translated stump usually means pillar.
