21:5 In anger, in fury, and in wrath I myself will fight against you with my mighty power and great strength! 1
27:5 “I made the earth and the people and animals on it by my mighty power and great strength, 2 and I give it to whomever I see fit. 3
1 tn Heb “with outstretched hand and with strong arm.” These are, of course, figurative of God’s power and might. He does not literally have hands and arms.
sn The phrases in this order are unique but a very similar phrase “by strong hand and outstretched arm” are found several times with reference to God’s mighty power unleashed against Egypt at the exodus (cf., Deut 4:34; 5:15; 26:8; Jer 32:21; Ps 136:12). Instead of being directed at Israel’s enemies it will now be directed against her.
