RBT Translation:
And Elohim Heard the Voice of the Boy - Genesis 21:17
He said, "Myself is a voice39 of him who cries out within the Desolate one,40 "Make straight the Road of Master according to what He is Liberator ("Isaiah"), the Prophet, has spoken."41
The "Road of Master" is not straight.
LITV Translation:
He said, "I am a voice crying in the wilderness:" "Make straight" "the way of the Lord," as Isaiah the prophet said. Isa. 40:3
ESV Translation:
He said, “I am the voice of one crying out in the wilderness, ‘Make straight the way of the Lord,’ as the prophet Isaiah said.”

Footnotes

39

Strong’s #G5456, phóné. Sound, noise. “Voice” may be implied, and then, maybe not, “a noise [phóné] was heard in Ramah” (Matt. 2:18). From which we get words like telephone, microphone, etc.

40

Strong’s #G2048, erémos. An adjective that means solitary, desolate. The widow.

"How she has sat separated/lonely, the Awakened one of a multplied gathering, she has become a widow, multiplied within the Backward ones [the Goyim]. A princess within the places of judgement has become to a forced-labor-body. ס" (Lamentations 1:1 RBT)

41

Many know this to be a reference to Isaiah 40:3. What many do not know is that both are a reference to an earlier story, the voice of Ishmael in the wilderness (Genesis 21:15).
