Psalms 48:5

Context
NETBible

As soon as they see, 1  they are shocked; 2  they are terrified, they quickly retreat. 3 

XREF

Ex 14:25; 2Ki 7:6,7; 2Ki 19:35-37

NET © Notes

tn The object of “see” is omitted, but v. 3b suggests that the Lord’s self-revelation as the city’s defender is what they see.

tn Heb “they look, so they are shocked.” Here כֵּן (ken, “so”) has the force of “in the same measure.”

tn The translation attempts to reflect the staccato style of the Hebrew text, where the main clauses of vv. 4-6 are simply juxtaposed without connectives.
