NET © Notes

tn Heb “who thicken on their sediment.” The imagery comes from wine making, where the wine, if allowed to remain on the sediment too long, will thicken into syrup. The image suggests that the people described here were complacent in their sinful behavior and interpreted the delay in judgment as divine apathy.

tn Heb “who say in their hearts.”

tn Heb “The Lord does not do good nor does he do evil.”
