“they shall mount up with wings as eagles”

“But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”

 

This section is from a Hebrew scroll of Isaiah originally written on sheep skin with a quill and iron gall ink in Poland. Because of the iron gall ink degradation and the re-lettering in many sections it has been determined that the Scroll was written sometime in the 1800s.

After surviving the Holocaust this fragmented scroll was sent to a Geniza in Israel and finally was moved to America in 2008.
We have what is left of the scroll in our collection in Houston, Texas.
