Isaiah 04 General Notes

Special concepts in this chapter

More women than men

This chapter describes a time when there will be many more women than men in Judah. This is because so many of Judah’s fighting men will have died before the exile. Those who come through this difficult time will be a holy remnant. (See: rc://en/ta/man/translate/figs-explicit, rc://en/tw/dict/bible/kt/holy and rc://en/tw/dict/bible/kt/remnant)
