2 tn Heb “not be cut off from the city” (so NRSV); NAB “not be removed.”

3 sn The statement the Lord will go to battle introduces the conflict known elsewhere as the “battle of Armageddon,” a battle in which the Lord delivers his people and establishes his millennial reign (cf. Joel 3:12, 15-16; Ezek 38–39; Rev 16:12-21; 19:19-21).

4 tn Heb “as he fights on a day of battle” (similar NASB, NIV, NRSV).
