NET © Notes

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

tn Heb “So God will do to you and thus he will add.” The verbal forms in this pronouncement are imperfects, not jussives, but the statement has the force of a curse or warning. One could translate, “May God do to you and thus may he add.”
