NET © Notes

tn Or “earth” (KJV); NAB “the country.”

tn Or “mourns” (BDB 5 s.v. I אָבַל). HALOT 6-7 lists homonyms I אבל (“mourn”) and II אבל (“dry up”). They propose the second here on the basis of parallelism. See 24:4.

tn Heb “Lebanon is ashamed.” The Hiphil is exhibitive, expressing the idea, “exhibits shame.” In this context the statement alludes to the withering of vegetation.

sn Sharon was a fertile plain along the Mediterranean coast. See 35:2.

tn Or “the Arabah” (NIV). See 35:1.

sn Both of these areas were known for their trees and vegetation. See 2:13; 35:2.
