“I destroyed your crops 1  with blight and disease. Locusts kept 2  devouring your orchards, 3  vineyards, fig trees, and olive trees. Still you did not come back to me.” The Lord is speaking!

NET © Notes

tn Heb “you.” By metonymy the crops belonging to these people are meant. See the remainder of this verse, which describes the agricultural devastation caused by locusts.

tn The Hiphil infinitive construct is taken adverbially (“kept”) and connected to the activity of the locusts (NJPS). It also could be taken with the preceding sentence and related to the Lord’s interventions (“I kept destroying,” cf. NEB, NJB, NIV, NRSV), or it could be understood substantivally in construct with the following nouns (“Locusts devoured your many orchards,” cf. NASB; cf. also KJV, NKJV).

tn Or “gardens.”
