Nehemiah 9:10

Context
9:10 You performed awesome signs 1  against Pharaoh, against his servants, and against all the people of his land, for you knew that the Egyptians 2  had acted presumptuously 3  against them. You made for yourself a name that is celebrated to this day.

1 tn Heb “signs and wonders.” This phrase is a hendiadys. The second noun functions adjectivally, while the first noun retains its full nominal sense: “awesome signs” or “miraculous signs.”

2 tn Heb “they”; the referent (the Egyptians) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

3 tn Or “arrogantly” (so NASB); NRSV “insolently.”
