1 tn The Hebrew text adds, “it will be said concerning you.”

2 tn Heb “eat” (KJV, NAB, NASB); NIV “feed on”; NLT “be fed with.”

3 tc The form in the Hebrew text is probably a corruption of יִתְאַמְּרוּ (yitammÿru), a Hitpael from אָמַר (’amar), meaning “boast about” (see HALOT 67 s.v. II אמר, HALOT 416 s.v. ימר, and BDB 56 s.v. אָמַר).

4 tn Heb “their glory” (i.e., riches).

5 tn Heb “all who see them will recognize them, that they [are] descendants [whom] the Lord has blessed.”
