Jeremiah 48:43


Terror, pits, and traps 1  are in store for the people who live in Moab. 2  I, the Lord, affirm it! 3 


De 32:23-25; Ps 11:6; Isa 24:17,18; La 3:47

NET © Notes

sn There is an extended use of assonance here and in the parallel passage in Isa 24:17. The Hebrew text reads פַּחַד וָפַחַת וָפָח (pakhad vafakhat vafakh). The assonance is intended to underscore the extensive trouble that is in store for them.

tn Heb “are upon you, inhabitant of Moab.” This is another example of the rapid switch in person or direct address (apostrophe) in the midst of a third person description or prediction which the present translation typically keeps in the third person for smoother English style.

tn Heb “Oracle of the Lord.”
