NET © Notes

sn The expression and gave them over suggests similarities to the judgment on the nations described by Paul in Rom 1:18-32.

tn Or “stars.”

sn To worship the hosts of heaven. Their action violated Deut 4:19; 17:2-5. See Ps 106:36-43.

tn The two terms for sacrifices “semantically reinforce one another and are here combined essentially for emphasis” (L&N 53.20).

tn The Greek construction anticipates a negative reply which is indicated in the translation by the ‘tag’ question, “was it?”
