NET © Notes

sn It is not certain if the prophet or the Lord is speaking at this point.

tn The suffixed (perfect) form of the verb is used; in this way the coming event is described for rhetorical effect as occurring or as already completed.

tn The third masculine singular suffix refers back to “my people.”

tn Heb “Their glory will be men of hunger.” כָּבוֹד (kavod, “glory”) is in opposition to הָמוֹן (hamon, “masses”) and refers here to the rich and prominent members of the nation. Some prefer to repoint מְתֵי (mÿtey, “men of”) as מִתֵי (mitey, “dead ones of”).

tn The third masculine singular suffix refers back to “my people.”

tn Heb “and their masses will be parched [by] thirst.”
