NET © Notes

tn Heb “will be awesome over [or, “against”] them.”

tn Or “certainly.”

tn The meaning of this rare Hebrew word is unclear. If the meaning is indeed “weaken,” then this line may be referring to the reduction of these gods’ territory through conquest (see Adele Berlin, Zephaniah [AB 25A], 110-11). Cf. NEB “reduce to beggary”; NASB “starve”; NIV “when he destroys”; NRSV “shrivel.”

tn Heb “and all the coastlands of the nations will worship [or, “bow down”] to him, each from his own place.”
