NET © Notes

tn Or “in that day” (KJV).

tn Heb “over it”; the referent (the prey) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

tn Heb “like the growling of the sea.”

tn Heb “and one will gaze toward the land, and look, darkness of distress, and light will grow dark by its [the land’s?] clouds.”

sn The motif of light turning to darkness is ironic when compared to v. 20. There the sinners turn light (= moral/ethical good) to darkness (= moral/ethical evil). Now ironically the Lord will turn light (= the sinners’ sphere of existence and life) into darkness (= the judgment and death).
