NET © Notes

tn Heb “anointed one.” In light of the parallelism with “your people” in the preceding line this could refer to Israel, but elsewhere the Lord’s anointed one is always an individual. The Davidic king is the more likely referent here.

tn Heb “you strike the head from the house of wickedness.”

tn Heb “laying bare [from] foundation to neck.”
