I will punish their rebellion by beating them with a club, 1 their sin by inflicting them with bruises. 2
I will punish their sin with the rod, their iniquity with flogging;
Then I will punish their transgression with the rod And their iniquity with stripes.
then I will punish their sin with the rod, and their disobedience with beating.
--I'll rub their faces in the dirt of their rebellion and make them face the music.
Then I will send punishment on them for their sin; my rod will be the reward of their evil-doing.
then I will punish their transgression with the rod and their iniquity with scourges;
Then I will punish their transgression with the rod, And their iniquity with stripes.
Then will I visit
with the rod
and their iniquity

1 tn Heb “I will punish with a club their rebellion.”
sn Despite the harsh image of beating…with a club, the language reflects a father-son relationship (see v. 30; 2 Sam 7:14). According to Proverbs, a שֵׁבֶט (shevet, “club”) was sometimes utilized to administer corporal punishment to rebellious children (see Prov 13:24; 22:15; 23:13-14; 29:15).
2 tn Heb “with blows their sin.”
