"Arise, shine" (Isa. 60:1)— The Hebrew verb "'or" means literally "to be bright, or radiant," "to shine"; but can also signify "to be happy or cheerful" (Feyerabend: Hebrew Dictionary, p. 9) ; just as in English idiom "bright" can mean either "shining" or "cheerful" (Webster's Dictionary) ; hence Moffatt's rendering: "Arise, be glad." The margin of the Authorized Version has: "Arise, be enlightened."
"Blessed are the poor in spirit" (Matt. 5:3) — This is a literal translation of the original Greek; but Goodspeed offers the interesting rendering: "Blessed are those who feel their spiritual need."
