NET © Notes

tn The Hebrew verb may mean “think” in this context. This content of what they say (or think) represents their point of view.

sn The expression build houses may mean “establish families” (Deut 25:9; Ruth 4:11; Prov 24:27).

tn Heb “she” or “it”; the feminine pronoun refers here to Jerusalem.

sn Jerusalem is also compared to a pot in Ezek 24:3-8. The siege of the city is pictured as heating up the pot.
