71. Sing about Lord (12:3-13:1)
3 Καὶ ἀντλήσετε ὕδωρ μετ’ εὐφροσύνης ἐκ τῶν πηγῶν τοῦ σωτηρίου. 4 καὶ ἐρεῖς ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ
Ὑμνεῖτε Κύριον, βοᾶτε τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ, ἀναγγείλατε ἐν τοῖς ἔθνεσιν τὰ ἔνδοξα αὐτοῦ, μιμνῄσκεσθε ὅτι ὑψώθη τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ. 5 ὑμνήσατε τὸ ὄνομα Κυρίου, ὅτι ὑψηλὰ ἐποίησεν· ἀναγγείλατε ταῦτα ἐν πάσῃ τῇ γῇ. 6 ἀγαλλιάσασθε καὶ εὐφραίνεσθε, οἱ κατοικοῦντες ἐν Σειών, ὅτι ὑψώθη ὁ ἅγιος τοῦ Ἰσραὴλ ἐν μέσῳ σου.
- 13.1 Ὅρασις, ἣν εἶδεν Ἠσαίας υἱὸς Ἀμὼς κατὰ Βαβυλῶνος.
Note the two differences between Rahlfs and Ziegler in 12:6.
ἀντλήσετε] future of ἀντλέω, which refers to taking liquid (here ὕδωρ) from out of something, here the πηγῶν, which refer to an abundant water source.
Ὑμνεῖτε] ὑμνέω with an accusative of the person sung of means to celebrate or commemorate that person in a hymn; i.e., to sing in praise to or or that person.
βοᾶτε] βοάω with with an accusative of a thing normally means to use a loud voice to call for or celebrate that thing.
ἀναγγείλατε] ἀναγγέλλω normally means report or proclaim.
μιμνῄσκεσθε] Swete spells it μιμνήσκεσθε
ἀναγγείλατε] connects this verse to the preceding.
ἀγαλλιάσασθε] changed by ca to ἀγαλλιᾶσθαι, a misspelling of ἀγαλλιᾶσθε, with A, B (Rahlfs, Ziegler). ἀγαλλιάω implies an extreme degree of rejoicing.
ἐν Σειών] A (Ziegler) spells it ἐν Σιών; B has only Σειών; Rahlfs has only Σιων.
ὑψώθη] recalls 12:4, where Lord’s name was exalter.
σου] with A (Ziegler); B (Rahlfs) has αὐτῆς. Note the singular, though the second person verbs here are all plural.
This entire verse is indented within the column. Athough the title clearly belongs with the next chapter (13) rather than as a summary of the preceding one (12), the new paragraph number clearly comes after this title, between 13:1 and 13:2.
Compare the beginning of chapter 1:1 Ὅρασις, ἣν εἶδεν Ἠσαίας υἱὸς Ἀμώς, ἣν εἶδεν κατὰ τῆς Ἰουδαίας, καὶ κατὰ Ἰερουσαλήμ ἐν βασιλείᾳ Ὀζίου, καὶ Ἰωαθὰμ, καὶ Ἀχὰζ καὶ Ἑζεκίου. This title has no time reference.
