NET © Notes

tn The prophet is probably the speaker here.

tn Or “stripped.” The precise meaning of this Hebrew word is unclear. It may refer to walking barefoot (see 2 Sam 15:30) or to partially stripping oneself (see Job 12:17-19).

tn Heb “naked.” This probably does not refer to complete nudity, but to stripping off one’s outer garments as an outward sign of the destitution felt by the mourner.

tn Heb “I will make lamentation.”

tn Or “a jackal”; CEV “howling wolves.”

tn Heb “[make] a mourning.”

tn Or perhaps “ostrich” (cf. ASV, NAB, NASB, NRSV, NLT).
