1 tn Heb “came.”
2 tn Heb “Look, you [are] dead.” The Hebrew construction uses the particle הִנֵּה (hinneh) with a second person pronominal particle הִנֵּה (hinneh) with by the participle. It is a highly rhetorical expression.

4 tn Heb “with the integrity of your heart.”
5 tn Heb “and I, even I, kept you.”
6 tn Heb “therefore.”
