to the one who abhors the nation,
to the slave of rulers:
“Kings shall see and stand up;
princes, and they shall bow down,
for the sake of Yahweh, who is faithful,
the holy one of Israel, and he has chosen you.”
8 Thus says Yahweh:
“I have answered you in a time of favor,
and helped you on a day of salvation,
and watched over you,
and given you as a covenant of the people,
to raise up the land,
to give the desolate hereditary property as an inheritance,
9 saying to the ⌊prisoners⌋,j “Come out!”
to those who are in darkness, “Show yourselves!”
they shall feed ⌊along⌋k the ways,
and their pasturage shall be on all the barren heights.
and heat and sun shall not strike them,
for he who takes pity on them will lead them,
and he will guide them to springs of water.
11 And I will ⌊make⌋l all my mountains like a road,
and my highways shall lead up.m
And look! These from the north and from the west
and these from the land of Sinim.”
A Dead Sea Scroll reads “is despised with respect to”
Literally “captured ones”
Or “be high”
