NET © Notes

tn Heb “slain [one].” The term חָלָל (khalal) suggests something other than a natural death (cf. Num 19:16; 23:24; Jer 51:52; Ezek 26:15; 30:24; 31:17-18).

tn The Hebrew text includes “to possess it,” but this has not been included in the translation for stylistic reasons.

tn Heb “struck,” but in context a fatal blow is meant; cf. NLT “who committed the murder.”
