The infant will play near the cobra's den, and the young child will put its hand into the viper's nest.
King James Bible
And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice' den.
American Standard Version
And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the adder's den.
Young's Literal Translation
And played hath a suckling by the hole of an asp, And on the den of a cockatrice Hath the weaned one put his hand.
Isaiah 11:8 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
The cockatrice' den - This is supposed, both by the Targum and by Kimchi, to mean the pupil of this serpent's eye. "When," says Kimchi, "he is in the mouth of his den, in an obscure place, then his eyes sparkle exceedingly: the child, seeing this, and supposing it to be a piece of crystal, or precious stone, puts forth his hand to take it. What would be very dangerous at another time, shall be safe in the days of the Messiah; for the serpent will not hurt the child."
