NET © Notes

tn The words, “that have been caught” are not in the text but are implicit in the comparison.

tn Heb “are filled with deceit.” The translation assumes a figure of speech of cause for effect (metonymy). Compare the same word in the same figure in Zeph 1:9.

tn Heb “therefore they have gotten great and rich.”
