Context
27:4 Charge them to give their masters a message from me. Tell them, ‘The Lord God of Israel who rules over all 1  says to give your masters this message. 2  27:5 “I made the earth and the people and animals on it by my mighty power and great strength, 3  and I give it to whomever I see fit. 4 

1 tn Heb “Yahweh of armies, the God of Israel.”

sn See study notes on 2:19 and 7:3 for the significance of this title.

2 tn Heb “Give them a charge to their masters saying, ‘Thus says Yahweh of armies, the God of Israel, “Thus you shall say unto your masters…”’” The sentence is broken up in conformity with contemporary English style.

3 tn Heb “by my great power and my outstretched arm.” Again “arm” is symbolical for “strength.” Compare the similar expression in 21:5.

4 sn See Dan 4:17 for a similar statement.
