NET © Notes

sn The names Oreb and Zeeb, which mean “Raven” and “Wolf” respectively, are appropriate because the Midianites had been like scavengers and predators to Israel.

tn The Hebrew text repeats the verb “executed.” This has not been repeated in the translation for stylistic reasons.

tn Heb “Midian.”

tn Heb “beyond the Jordan.” The word “River” is not in the Hebrew text but has been supplied in the translation for clarity (also in 8:4).
