1 tn Or “is inciting you against us.”
2 tn Heb “in order to give us into the hands of the Chaldeans.” The substitution “he wants to” as the equivalent of the purpose clause has been chosen to shorten the sentence to better conform with contemporary English style.
3 tn Heb “Chaldeans.” See the study note on 21:4 for explanation.
