8:33 “The time will come when 1 your people Israel are defeated by an enemy 2 because they sinned against you. If they come back to you, renew their allegiance to you, 3 and pray for your help 4 in this temple, 8:34 then listen from heaven, forgive the sin of your people Israel, and bring them back to the land you gave to their ancestors.
1 tn Heb “when.” In the Hebrew text vv. 33-34 actually contain one lengthy conditional sentence, which the translation has divided into two sentences for stylistic reasons.
2 tn Or “are struck down before an enemy.”
3 tn Heb “confess [or perhaps, “praise”] your name.”
4 tn Heb “and they pray and ask for help.”
