Isa 2:11; Isa 13:11; Jer 48:29,30; Eze 28:2-7

NET © Notes

tn Heb “and the pride of men will be brought down, and the arrogance of men will be brought low.” As in v. 11, the repetition of the verbs שָׁפַל (shafal) and שָׁחָח (shakhakh) from v. 9 draws attention to the appropriate nature of the judgment. Those proud men who “bow low” before idols will be forced to “bow low” before God when he judges their sin.

tn Or “elevated”; NCV “praised”; CEV “honored.”
