Reading Isaiah’s Mind – Chapter Four – verses 1-6

The Branch of the Lord 

 Tzemah means: branch; offspring, scion, twig or sprout.  In a concrete sense, it refers to plant-life that germinates and grows.Related image
Isaiah uses Tzemah as a metaphor, referring to people, of a particular variety,  who spring-forth, mature and proliferate.  “As one person dies, another is born upon the earth” (Job 8:19). This metaphor asserts that the generations of men can be compared to leaves sprouting forth on trees: “one dies and another sprouts”. The substance of Tzemah is “something that sprouts and grows”, i.e. “new-growth”. According to Jeremiah and Zechariah, Tzemah is a “messianic-title.” According to (Jeremiah 23:5),  Jehovah will raise-up a Tzemah-saddiq (righteous-branch) on behalf of the House of David, i.e. a Tzemah-saddiq  who will reign as Israel’s royalty and execute justice and righteousness. With regard to the expression Tzemah-saddiq, in a 3rd century Phoenician inscription, it denotes a “mature-sprout” or “legitimate heir” . The reference is to a legitimate ruler belonging to the Dynasty (family; line of hereditary rulers) of King David. In (Zechariah 3:8)  Yzemah is a technical term . In it, Jehovah pro (line of hereditary rulersmises to bring forth his servant – “The branch.” (new generation of an ancient royal-lineage; new generation of a-long-standing royal-lineage of hereditary rulers; new generation of an “ancient-royal-family”).
