NET © Notes

tn Heb “I wish I had in the desert a lodging place [inn, or place to spend the night] for travelers.”

tn Or “bunch,” but this loses the irony; the word is used for the solemn assemblies at the religious feasts.

tn Heb “they are all adulterers, a congregation of unfaithful people.” However, spiritual adultery is, of course, meant, not literal adultery. So the literal translation would be misleading.
