NET © Notes

tn Heb “[will be] on their head[s].” “Joy” may be likened here to a crown (cf. 2 Sam 1:10). The statement may also be an ironic twist on the idiom “earth/dust on the head” (cf. 2 Sam 1:2; 13:19; 15:32; Job 2:12), referring to a mourning practice.

tn Heb “overtake” (so NIV); NASB “they will obtain.”

tn Heb “grief and groaning will flee.”
