NET © Notes

tn Heb “Please listen to the voice of the Lord with regard to what I have been telling you.” For the idiom “listen to the voice” = “obey” see BDB 1034 s.v. שָׁמַע 1.m. Obedience here is expressed by following the advice in the qualifying clause, i.e., what I have been telling you.

tn Heb “your life [or you yourself] will live.” Compare v. 17 and the translator’s note there for the idiom.
