NET © Notes

tn Or “moan” (ASV, NAB, NASB, NRSV); KJV, CEV “mourn.”

tn Heb “my eyes become weak, toward the height.”

tn The Hebrew term translated “sovereign master” here and in v. 16 is אֲדֹנָי (’adonay).

tn Heb “stand surety for me.” Hezekiah seems to be picturing himself as a debtor who is being exploited; he asks that the Lord might relieve his debt and deliver him from the oppressive creditor.
