16:51 Samaria has not committed half the sins you have; you have done more abominable deeds than they did. 1 You have made your sisters appear righteous with all the abominable things you have done.
16:52 So now, bear your disgrace, because you have given your sisters reason to justify their behavior. 2 Because the sins you have committed were more abominable than those of your sisters; they have become more righteous than you. So now, be ashamed and bear the disgrace of making your sisters appear righteous.
1 tn Or “you have multiplied your abominable deeds beyond them.”
2 tn Heb “because you have interceded for your sisters with your sins.”
