NET © Notes

sn The place name Maroth sounds like the Hebrew word for “bitter.”

tc The translation assumes an emendation of חָלָה (khalah; from חִיל, khil, “to writhe”) to יִחֲלָה (yikhalah; from יָחַל, yakhal, “to wait”).

tn Heb “[the residents of Maroth] writhe [= “anxiously long for”?] good.”

tn Heb “though disaster has come down from the Lord to the gate of Jerusalem.”
