Word Study
.
From NetBible Zep 3:17

  • save[03467] = to save, to be liberated, to give victory to
    *from a primitive root, Greek [5614] = hosanna
  • He will quiet you[02790] = make silent, give rest
    * “he causes [you] to be silent by his love,” that is, “he soothes [you] by his love.” The present translation follows the LXX and assumes an original reading יְחַדֵּשׁ (yÿkhaddesh, “he renews”) with ellipsis of the object (“you”).

    • NET … He renews you by His love
    • NLT …  With His love, He will calm all your fears
    • KJV … He will rest in His love{give you rest in His love}
  • love[0160] = God’s love for His people, faithfulness

Isaiah 60:13 NASB
13 “The glory of Lebanon will come to you,
The juniper, the box tree and the cypress together,
To beautify the place of My sanctuary;
And I shall make the place of My feet glorious.

From NetBible Isa 60:13

  • beautify[06286] = glorify, adorn
  • sanctuary[04720] = temple, tabernacle, sacred holy place
    Ezek 43:7, where the Lord’s throne is called the “place of the soles of my feet.”
    Isa 66:1, the Lord’s throne is where He rests His feet – He rests/abides
    “Heaven is My throne, And earth is My footstool. Where is the house that you will build Me? And where is the place of My rest?”
  • glorious[03513] = to bestow honor
    .
    Isaiah 11:10 AMP
    10 And it shall be in that day that the Root of Jesse shall stand as a signal[banner, rally point] for the peoples; of Him shall the nations inquire and seek knowledge, and His dwelling shall be glory [His rest glorious[03519]]!
