NET © Notes

tn The expression “this (v. 23)…and this” (v. 25) means “one…the other.”

tn The text literally has “and this [man] dies in soul of bitterness.” Some simply reverse it and translate “in the bitterness of soul.” The genitive “bitterness” may be an attribute adjective, “with a bitter soul.”

tn Heb “eaten what is good.” It means he died without having enjoyed the good life.
