NET © Notes

tn Heb “have acted corruptly” (so NASB, NIV, NLT); NRSV “have dealt falsely.”

tn Heb “(they are) not his sons.”

tn Heb “defect” (so NASB). This highly elliptical line suggests that Israel’s major fault was its failure to act like God’s people; in fact, they acted quite the contrary.

tn Heb “twisted,” “crooked.” See Ps 18:26.
