NET © Notes

tn Heb “Is not my message like a fire?” The rhetorical question expects a positive answer that is made explicit in the translation. The words “that purges dross” are not in the text but are implicit to the metaphor. They are supplied in the translation for clarity.

tn Heb “Is it not like a hammer that breaks a rock in pieces?” See preceding note.

tn Heb “Oracle of the Lord.”
