NET © Notes

tn Heb “in the day.”

tn Heb “his.” With the referent “Israel” here, this amounts to a collective singular.

tn Traditionally, “transgressions, sins,” but see the note on the word “crimes” in 1:3.

tn Heb “punish” (so NASB, NRSV).

map For location see Map4 G4; Map5 C1; Map6 E3; Map7 D1; Map8 G3.

sn The horns of an ancient altar projected upwards from the four corners and resembled an animal’s horns in appearance. Fugitives could seek asylum by grabbing hold of these corners (see Exod 21:14; 1 Kgs 1:50; 2:28). When the altar’s horns were cut off, there would be no place of asylum left for the Lord’s enemies.
