21:6 “And you, son of man, groan with an aching heart 1 and bitterness; groan before their eyes. 21:7 When they ask you, ‘Why are you groaning?’ you will reply, ‘Because of the report that has come. Every heart will melt with fear and every hand will be limp; everyone 2 will faint and every knee will be wet with urine.’ 3 Pay attention – it is coming and it will happen, declares the sovereign Lord.”
1 tn Heb “breaking loins.”
2 tn Heb “every spirit will be dim.”
3 sn This expression depicts in a very vivid way how they will be overcome with fear. See the note on the same phrase in 7:17.
