Therefore night will fall, and you will receive no visions; 1 it will grow dark, and you will no longer be able to read the omens. 2 The sun will set on these prophets, and the daylight will turn to darkness over their heads. 3

1 tn Heb “it will be night for you without a vision.”
sn The coming of night (and darkness in the following line) symbolizes the cessation of revelation.
2 tn Heb “it will be dark for you without divination.”
sn The reading of omens (Heb “divination”) was forbidden in the law (Deut 18:10), so this probably reflects the prophets’ view of how they received divine revelation.
3 tn Heb “and the day will be dark over them.”
