NET © Notes

tn Or “forest.” So HALOT 963 s.v. פַּרְדֵּס 2.

tc One medieval Hebrew MS, the Syriac Peshitta, Vulgate, and the Arabic read here the plural וּלְחוֹמוֹת (ulÿkhomot, “walls”) against the singular וּלְחוֹמַת (ulÿkhomat) in the MT. The plural holem vav (וֹ) might have dropped out due to dittography or the plural form might have been written defectively.

tn The Hebrew text does not include the expression “these requests,” but it is implied.
