NET © Notes

tn Heb “set your face toward.” This expression occurs as well in Ezek 6:2; 13:17.

tn Or “the way toward the south,” or “the way toward Teman.” Teman is in the south and may be a location or the direction.

tn Or “toward Darom.” Darom may mean the south or a region just north of southern city of Beer Sheba. See M. Greenberg, Ezekiel (AB), 2:417-18.

tn The Hebrew term can also mean “forest,” but a meaning of uncultivated wasteland fits the Negev region far better. See M. Greenberg, Ezekiel (AB), 2:418.
