NET © Notes

tn Heb “under trouble I saw the tents of Cushan.”

sn Cushan was located in southern Transjordan.

tn R. D. Patterson takes תַּחַת אֲוֶן (takhataven) in the first line as a place name, “Tahath-Aven.” (Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah [WEC], 237.) In this case one may translate the verse as a tricolon: “I look at Tahath-Aven. The tents of Cushan are shaking, the tent curtains of the land of Midian.”
