NET © Notes

tn Heb “this is the word which the Lord has spoken about him.”

sn Zion (Jerusalem) is pictured here as a young, vulnerable daughter whose purity is being threatened by the would-be Assyrian rapist. The personification hints at the reality which the young girls of the city would face if the Assyrians conquer it.

sn Shaking the head was a mocking gesture of derision.
