NET © Notes

tn Heb “we have given the hand”; cf. NRSV “We have made a pact.” This is a Semitic idiom meaning “to make a treaty with” someone, placing oneself in a subservient position as vassal. The prophets criticized these treaties.

tn Heb “bread.” The term “bread” is a synecdoche of specific (= bread) for the general (= food).
