NET © Notes

tn Heb “therefore.”

sn The fishing implements (throw net and dragnet) represent Babylonian military might. The prophet depicts the Babylonians as arrogantly worshiping their own power (sacrifices…burns incense, see also v. 11b).

tn Heb “for by them his portion is full [or, “fat”].”

tn Heb “and his food is plentiful [or, “fat”].”
