NET © Notes

tn Having quoted the Assyrian king’s arrogant words in vv. 23-24, the Lord now speaks to the king.

tn Heb “Have you not heard?” The rhetorical question expresses the Lord’s amazement that anyone might be ignorant of what he is about to say.

tn Heb “formed” (so KJV, ASV).

tn Heb “and it is to cause to crash into heaps of ruins fortified cities.” The subject of the third feminine singular verb תְהִי (tÿhi) is the implied plan, referred to in the preceding lines with third feminine singular pronominal suffixes.
