2 Chronicles 36:16-17

36:16 But they mocked God’s messengers, despised his warnings, 1  and ridiculed his prophets. 2  Finally the Lord got very angry at his people and there was no one who could prevent his judgment. 3  36:17 He brought against them the king of the Babylonians, who slaughtered 4  their young men in their temple. 5  He did not spare 6  young men or women, or even the old and aging. God 7  handed everyone over to him.

1 tn Heb “his words.”

2 tn All three verbal forms (“mocked,” “despised,” and “ridiculed”) are active participles in the Hebrew text, indicating continual or repeated action. They made a habit of rejecting God’s prophetic messengers.

3 tn Heb “until the anger of the Lord went up against his people until there was no healer.”

4 tn Heb “killed with the sword.”

5 tn Heb “in the house of their sanctuary.”

6 tn Or “show compassion to.”

7 tn Heb “he”; the referent (God) has been specified in the translation for clarity.
