NET © Notes

tn Aram “and behold.”

sn The three ribs held securely in the mouth of the bear, perhaps representing Media-Persia, apparently symbolize military conquest, but the exact identity of the “ribs” is not clear. Possibly it is a reference to the Persian conquest of Lydia, Egypt, and Babylonia.

tc The LXX lacks the phrase “between its teeth.”

tn Aram “and thus they were saying to it.”
