Exodus 15:16


Fear and dread 1  will fall 2  on them; by the greatness 3  of your arm they will be as still as stone 4  until 5  your people pass by, O Lord, until the people whom you have bought 6  pass by.

NET © Notes

tn The two words can form a nominal hendiadys, “a dreadful fear,” though most English versions retain the two separate terms.

tn The form is an imperfect.

tn The adjective is in construct form and governs the noun “arm” (“arm” being the anthropomorphic expression for what God did). See GKC 428 §132.c.

sn For a study of the words for fear, see N. Waldman, “A Comparative Note on Exodus 15:14-16,” JQR 66 (1976): 189-92.

tn Clauses beginning with עַד (’ad) express a limit that is not absolute, but only relative, beyond which the action continues (GKC 446-47 §138.g).

tn The verb קָנָה (qanah) here is the verb “acquire, purchase,” and probably not the homonym “to create, make” (see Gen 4:1; Deut 32:6; and Prov 8:22).
