NET © Notes

tn Heb “they desire fields and rob [them], and houses and take [them] away.”

tn Heb “and they oppress a man and his home.”

tn Heb “and a man and his inheritance.” The verb עָשַׁק (’ashaq, “to oppress”; “to wrong”) does double duty in the parallel structure and is understood by ellipsis in the second line.
