NET © Notes

tn Heb “upon evil [are their] hands to do [it] well.”

tn Heb “the official asks – and the judge – for a bribe.”

tn More literally, “the great one announces what his appetite desires and they weave it together.” Apparently this means that subordinates plot and maneuver to make sure the prominent man’s desires materialize.
