NET © Notes

tn Or “closed their mind.”

tn Or “their mind.”

tn One could also translate στραφῶσιν (strafwsin) as “repent” or “change their ways,” but both of these terms would be subject to misinterpretation by the modern English reader. The idea is one of turning back to God, however. The words “to me” are not in the Greek text, but are implied.

sn A quotation from Isa 6:10.
