NET © Notes

tn Heb “sacrifice.” This has been translated as “offer” for stylistic reasons to avoid the redundancy of “sacrifice their sacrifices.”

tn On “goat demons” of the desert regions see the note on Lev 16:8.

tn Heb “which they are committing harlotry after them.”

tn Heb “for your generations.”
