NET © Notes

tn Heb “they.” The referent has been specified as “people,” referring either to the nations (coming to God with their tribute) or to the exiles of Israel (returning to the Lord).

tn The masculine pronominal suffix suggests the Lord is addressed. Some emend to a feminine form and take Jerusalem as the addressee.

tc The MT reads וְעָרֵי (vÿarey, “and the cities [of Egypt]”), but the parallel line indicates this is a corruption of וְעַד (vÿad, “even to”).

tn Heb “the River,” referring to the Euphrates River. This has been specified in the translation for clarity (so also NASB, NIV).

tn Heb “and sea from sea.” Many prefer to emend this to מִיָּם עַד יָם (miyyamad yam, “from sea to sea”).

tn Heb “and mountain of the mountain.” Many prefer to emend this to וּמֵהַר עַד הַר (umeharad har, “and mountain to mountain”).
