NET © Notes

tn Heb “the words of his mouth.”

sn The terms “beginning” and “end” form a merism, a figure of speech in which two opposites are contrasted to indicate totality (e.g., Deut 6:7; Ps 139:8; Eccl 3:2-8). The words of a fool are madness from “start to finish.”

tn Heb “his mouth.”

tn Heb “madness of evil.”
