NET © Notes

tn Heb “or from the sojourner who sojourns”; NAB “an alien residing in Israel.”

tn Heb “his seed” (so KJV, ASV); likewise in vv. 3-4.

tn Regarding Molech and Molech worship see the note on Lev 18:21.

tn This is not the most frequently-used Hebrew verb for stoning (see instead סָקַל, saqal), but a word that refers to the action of throwing, slinging, or pelting someone with stones (רָגָם, ragam; see HALOT 1187 s.v. רגם qal.a, and B. A. Levine, Leviticus [JPSTC], 136).
