NLT Footnotes
Greek version reads He sends his angels like the winds, / his servants like flames of fire. Compare Heb 1:7.
Or coneys, or rock badgers.
The identification of Leviathan is disputed, ranging from an earthly creature to a mythical sea monster in ancient literature.
Or When you send your Spirit.
