NET © Notes

tn The Hebrew text uses the infinitive absolute for emphasis, which the translation indicates with the words “without fail” (cf. NIV “you must certainly put him to death”).

tn Heb “to put him to death,” but this is misleading in English for such an action would leave nothing for the others to do.
