9:13 Moreover, he said to me, “I have taken note of these people; they are a stubborn 1 lot! 9:14 Stand aside 2 and I will destroy them, obliterating their very name from memory, 3 and I will make you into a stronger and more numerous nation than they are.”
9:19 For I was terrified at the Lord’s intense anger 4 that threatened to destroy you. But he 5 listened to me this time as well.
2 tn Heb “leave me alone.”
3 tn Heb “from under heaven.”
4 tn Heb “the anger and the wrath.” Although many English versions translate as two terms, this construction is a hendiadys which serves to intensify the emotion (cf. NAB, TEV “fierce anger”).
6 tn The Hebrew text includes “when I prostrated myself.” Since this is redundant, it has been left untranslated.
