NET © Notes

tn The expression is “in/by/against their life.” That they sinned against their life means that they brought ruin to themselves.

tn The form is the perfect tense with vav (ו) consecutive. But there is no expressed subject for “and they shall make them,” and so it may be treated as a passive (“they shall [must] be made”).
