Footnotes:

  1. Isaiah 7:20 tn Heb “in that day” (so ASV, NASB); KJV “In the same day.”
  2. Isaiah 7:20 tn Heb “the river” (so KJV); NASB “the Euphrates.” The name of the river has been supplied in the present translation for clarity.
  3. Isaiah 7:20 tn Heb “the hair of the feet.” The translation assumes that the word “feet” is used here as a euphemism for the genitals. See BDB 920 s.v. רֶגֶל.
