|New International Version (© 2011)|
The canals will stink; the streams of Egypt will dwindle and dry up. The reeds and rushes will wither,
King James Bible
And they shall turn the rivers far away; and the brooks of defence shall be emptied and dried up: the reeds and flags shall wither.
American Standard Version
And the rivers shall become foul; the streams of Egypt shall be diminished and dried up; the reeds and flags shall wither away.
Young's Literal Translation
And they have turned away the flowings, Weak and dried up have been brooks of the bulwark, Reed and flag have withered.
Isaiah 19:6 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Shall turn the rivers far away "Shall become putrid" - האזניחו heeznichu. This sense of the word, which Simonis gives in his Lexicon, from the meaning of it in Arabic, suits the place much better than any other interpretation hitherto given; and that the word in Hebrew had some such signification, is probable from 2 Chronicles 29:19, where the Vulgate renders it by polluit, polluted, and the Targum, by profaned, and made abominable, which the context in that place seems plainly to require. The form of the verb here is very irregular; and the rabbins and grammarians seem to give no probable account of it.
