NET © Notes

sn This proverb is about the stability of the righteous in times of trouble. The term “overthrown” might allude to Gen 19:21.

tn Heb “and they are not.”

tn Heb “the house of the righteous.” The genitive צַדִּיקִים (tsadiqim) functions as an attributive adjective: “righteous house.” The noun בֵּית (bet, “house”) functions as a synecdoche of container (= house) for the contents (= family, household; perhaps household possessions). Cf. NCV “a good person’s family”; NLT “the children of the godly.”
