Isaiah 28:26 = /vayisro l'mishpat elohaiv yorenu/
English translations always render something like: "His God
instructs/chastises him to judgment, and teaches him."
My question concerns deriving "teaches HIM" from /yorenu/. I would
think that the translation would be "he will teach US". Yet all the
translations agree. What am I missing?
Second question: in the Socino Talmud (Sanhedrin 105a), the phrase
/elohaiv yorenu/ by itself is translated "Let his God teach us". Here at
least I get the expected "us". But what about the "Let ..."? Why not
just translate "His God will teach us"? How would this difference show
up in Hebrew?
