NET © Notes

tn Heb “prayed and said.” This is somewhat redundant in contemporary English and has been simplified in the translation.

sn Horns of animals have always functioned as both offensive and defensive weapons for them. As a figure of speech the horn is therefore often used in the Bible as a symbol of human strength (see also in v. 10). The allusion in v. 1 to the horn being lifted high suggests a picture of an animal elevating its head in a display of strength or virility.

tn Heb “my mouth opens wide against.”

tn Heb “for I rejoice in your deliverance.”
