NET © Notes

tn Or “nations.”

tn Heb “before it.”

tn Heb “all faces gather beauty”; or “all faces gather a glow.” The Hebrew word פָּארוּר (parur) is found in the OT only here and in Nah 2:11. Its meaning is very uncertain. Some scholars associate it with a root that signifies “glowing”; hence “all faces gather a glow of dread.” Others associate the word with פָּרוּר (parur, “pot”); hence “all faces gather blackness.” Still others take the root to signify “beauty”; hence “all faces gather in their beauty” in the sense of growing pale due to fear. This is the view assumed here.
