NET © Notes

sn The destruction of Moab by fire is an example of a judgment in kind – as the Moabites committed the crime of “burning,” so the Lord will punish them by setting them on fire.

sn Kerioth was an important Moabite city. See Jer 48:24, 41.

tn Or “die” (KJV, NASB, NRSV, TEV); NAB “shall meet death.”

tn Or “in the tumult.” This word refers to the harsh confusion of sounds that characterized an ancient battle – a mixture of war cries, shouts, shrieks of pain, clashes of weapons, etc.

tn Heb “sound” (so KJV, NASB, NRSV).

sn The ram’s horn (used as a trumpet) was blown to signal the approaching battle.
