“But surely I gave 1  you no food to eat in any of your cities; you lacked food everywhere you live. 2  Still you did not come back to me.” The Lord is speaking!

NET © Notes

tn The Hebrew construction is emphatic (pronoun + verb). It underscores the stark contrast between the judgments that the Lord had been sending with the God of blessing Israel was celebrating in its worship (4:4-5).

tn Heb “But I gave to you cleanness of teeth in all your cities, and lack of food in all your places.” The phrase “cleanness of teeth” is a vivid way of picturing the famine Israel experienced.
