NET © Notes

tn Heb “Therefore.”

tn Heb “The Lord God of armies.” See the translator’s note at 2:19.

sn Here the emphasis appears to be on the fact that the Lord is in charge of the enemy armies whom he will use to punish Israel for their denial of his prior warnings through the prophets.

tn The words, “to me” are not in the text but are implicit in the connection. They are supplied in the translation for clarification.

tn Heb “you have spoken.” The text here דַּבֶּרְכֶם (dabberkhem, “you have spoken”) is either a case of a scribal error for דַּבֶּרָם (dabberam, “they have spoken”) or an example of the rapid shift in addressee which is common in Jeremiah.

tn Heb “this word.”

tn Heb “like wood and it [i.e., the fire I put in your mouth] will consume them.”
