14:19 But you have been thrown out of your grave
like a shoot that is thrown away. 1
You lie among 2 the slain,
among those who have been slashed by the sword,
as if you were a mangled corpse. 5
because you destroyed your land
and killed your people.
The offspring of the wicked
will never be mentioned again.
1 tn Heb “like a shoot that is abhorred.” The simile seems a bit odd; apparently it refers to a small shoot that is trimmed from a plant and tossed away. Some prefer to emend נֵצֶר (netser, “shoot”); some propose נֵפֶל (nefel, “miscarriage”). In this case one might paraphrase: “like a horrible-looking fetus that is delivered when a woman miscarries.”
2 tn Heb “are clothed with.”
3 tn Heb “those going down to.”
5 tn Heb “like a trampled corpse.” Some take this line with what follows.
6 tn Heb “you will not be united with them in burial” (so NASB).
