NET © Notes

tn Heb “rocky cliff” (cf. ASV, NASB “rock”), viewed metaphorically as a place of defense and security.

tn Heb “His rocky cliff, because of fear, will pass away [i.e., “perish”].”

tn Heb “and they will be afraid of the flag, his officers.”

sn The “fire” and “firepot” here symbolize divine judgment, which is heating up like a fire in Jerusalem, waiting to be used against the Assyrians when they attack the city.
