NET © Notes

sn The word “hope” (תּוֹחֶלֶת [tokhelet] from יָחַל [yakhal]) also has the implication of a tense if not anxious wait.

tn The verb is the Pual participle from מָשַׁךְ (mashakh,“to draw; to drag”).

sn Failure in realizing one’s hopes can be depressing or discouraging. People can bear frustration only so long (W. G. Plaut, Proverbs, 153).

tn Heb “a desire that comes”; cf. CEV “a wish that comes true.”

tn The comparative “like” does not appear in the Hebrew text, but is implied by the metaphor; it is supplied for the sake of clarity.
