NET © Notes

tn Heb “the sea,” referring to the Dead Sea. This has been specified in the translation for clarity.

tn Heb “to the sea, those which are brought out.” The reading makes no sense. The text is best emended to read “filthy” (i.e., stagnant). See L. C. Allen, Ezekiel (WBC), 2:273.

tn Heb “the waters become healed.”
