“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.
This photo contains verses from Isaiah 40:21 through Isaiah 41:2. The Yad (pointer) is indicating where Isaiah 40:31 starts.

“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.”

Isaiah 40:31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles;
Isaiah 40:31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles;

 

Isaiah 40:31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles;
Isaiah 40:31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles;

Scroll of Isaiah

This photograph is from the Scroll of Isaiah purchased from Machon Ot in Jerusalem in 2004. Rabbi Steiner wrote the following: “Isaiah Scroll (complete) – Russia 80 – 90 years old.” The Scroll had been re-lettered sometime in the past. The Scroll had been damaged since the re-lettering, probably in a pogrom in Russia and could no longer be made kosher.  The Scroll was in The Scriptorium in Texas for several years. I delivered the Scroll to representatives from Bob Jones University in Greenville, South Carolina in 2012. They were to secure a location for the Scroll in the Campus Museum.

Over a period of six years I purchased six Scrolls of Isaiah. They are all being used in research and museums owned and operated by Christian organizations in America. Scrolls such as Isaiah have been very rare to non-existent in the Gentile Christian world. I am trying to install as many photographs as possible in lessons on my website at www.scrolls4all.org and high resolution photographs will soon be offered at  www.ezdigitalbooks.com.
