And many would [fn]flatter you.

And [fn]there will be no escape for them;
And their hope is [fn]to breathe their last.”
NASB20 Footnotes
Lit is double
Lit causes to be forgotten for you
Lit the heights of heaven
I.e., the netherworld
Or and does not investigate
Lit A hollow man
Lit lifespan
Lit rise above noonday
Lit soften your face
Lit escape has perished from them
Lit the expiring of the soul
