NET © Notes

tn Heb “beasts of the field.”

tn Heb “long for you.” Animals of course do not have religious sensibilities as such; they do not in any literal sense long for Yahweh. Rather, the language here is figurative (metonymy of cause for effect). The animals long for food and water (so BDB 788 s.v. עָרַג), the ultimate source of which is Yahweh.

tn Heb “sources of water.”

tn Heb “consumed.”

tn Heb “the pastures of the wilderness.”
