25:5 He said through them, 1 ‘Each of you must turn from your wicked ways and stop doing the evil things you are doing. 2 If you do, I will allow you to continue to live here in the land that I gave to you and your ancestors as a lasting possession. 3 25:6 Do not pay allegiance to 4 other gods and worship and serve them. Do not make me angry by the things that you do. 5 Then I will not cause you any harm.’
1 tn Heb “saying.” The infinitive goes back to “he sent”; i.e., “he sent, saying.”
5 tn Heb “make me angry with the work of your hands.” The term “work of your own hands” is often interpreted as a reference to idolatry as is clearly the case in Isa 2:8; 37:19. However, the parallelism in 25:14 and the context in 32:30 show that it is more general and refers to what they have done. That is likely the meaning here as well.
