NET © Notes

sn Verse 26a depicts siege warfare and bloody defeat. The besieged enemy will be so starved they will their own flesh. The bloodstained bodies lying on the blood-soaked battle site will look as if they collapsed in drunkenness.

tn Heb “flesh” (so KJV, NASB).

tn Heb “your redeemer.” See the note at 41:14.

tn Heb “the powerful [one] of Jacob.” See 1:24.
