1 tn Heb “a generation that did not make firm its heart and whose spirit was not faithful with God.” The expression “make firm the heart” means “to be committed, devoted” (see 1 Sam 7:3).

2 tn Or “caused him pain.”

3 tn Heb “he sent against them the rage of his anger.” The phrase “rage of his anger” employs an appositional genitive. Synonyms are joined in a construct relationship to emphasize the single idea. For a detailed discussion of the grammatical point with numerous examples, see Y. Avishur, “Pairs of Synonymous Words in the Construct State (and in Appositional Hendiadys) in Biblical Hebrew,” Semitics 2 (1971): 17-81.

4 tn Heb “fury and indignation and trouble, a sending of messengers of disaster.”

5 tn Or “tested and rebelled against.”

6 tn Heb “God, the Most High.”

7 tn Or “keep.”

8 tn Heb “his testimonies” (see Ps 25:10).
