Footnotes

  1. Isaiah 47:10 Lit it has

Behold, you are wiser than (A)Daniel;
There is no secret that is a match for you.
“By your wisdom and understanding
You have acquired (B)riches for yourself
And have acquired gold and silver for your treasuries.
“By your great wisdom, by your (C)trade
You have increased your riches
And your (D)heart is lifted up because of your riches—

Therefore thus says the Lord God,

‘Because you have (E)made your heart
Like the heart of God,
Therefore, behold, I will bring (F)strangers upon you,
The (G)most ruthless of the nations.
And they will draw their swords
Against the beauty of your wisdom
And defile your splendor.
