HCSB Footnotes
Lit my words are not false
Lit He is mighty in strength of heart
Or will perish by the sword
Lit from a mouth of narrowness
Or you into mockery
Or bribe
Or cry for help
Or for you have preferred this to
Lit He draws in waterdrops
Or His
Lit His, or Its
Lit thunder announces concerning Him or it
