|New International Version (© 2011)|
I will encamp against you on all sides; I will encircle you with towers and set up my siege works against you.
King James Bible
And I will camp against thee round about, and will lay siege against thee with a mount, and I will raise forts against thee.
American Standard Version
And I will encamp against thee round about, and will lay siege against thee with posted troops, and I will raise siege works against thee.
Young's Literal Translation
And I encamped, O babbler, against thee, And I laid siege against thee -- a camp. And I raised up against thee bulwarks.
Isaiah 29:3 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
And I will camp against thee round about "And I will encamp against thee like David" - For כדור caddur, some kind of military engine, כדוד kedavid, like David, is the reading of the Septuagint, two MSS. of Kennicott's, if not two more: but though Bishop Lowth adopts this reading, I think it harsh and unnecessary.
Forts "Towers" - For מצרת metsuroth, read מצדות metsudoth: so the Septuagint and five MSS. of Dr. Kennicott's, one of them ancient, and four of De Rossi's.
