NET © Notes

tn Or “I am your true husband.”

sn There is a wordplay between the term “true master” and the name of the pagan god Baal. The pronoun “I” is emphatic, creating a contrast between the Lord as Israel’s true master/husband versus Baal as Israel’s illegitimate lover/master. See 2:23-25.

tn The words, “If you do” are not in the text but are implicit in the connection of the Hebrew verb with the preceding.
