Jeremiah 23:19

Context

23:19 But just watch! 1  The wrath of the Lord

will come like a storm! 2 

Like a raging storm it will rage down 3 

on the heads of those who are wicked.

Jeremiah 30:23

Context

30:23 Just watch! The wrath of the Lord

will come like a storm.

Like a raging storm it will rage down

on the heads of those who are wicked.

1 tn Heb “Behold!”

2 tn The syntax of this line has generally been misunderstood, sometimes to the point that some want to delete the word wrath. Both here and in 30:23 where these same words occur the word “anger” stands not as an accusative of attendant circumstance but an apposition, giving the intended referent to the figure. Comparison should be made with Jer 25:15 where “this wrath” is appositional to “the cup of wine” (cf. GKC 425 §131.k).

3 tn The translation is deliberate, intending to reflect the repetition of the Hebrew root which is “swirl/swirling.”
