Habakuk 2:18

Konteks

2:18 What good 1  is an idol? Why would a craftsman make it? 2 

What good is a metal image that gives misleading oracles? 3 

Why would its creator place his trust in it 4 

and make 5  such mute, worthless things?

[2:18]  1 tn Or “of what value.”

[2:18]  2 tn Heb “so that the one who forms it fashions it?” Here כִּי (ki) is taken as resultative after the rhetorical question. For other examples of this use, see R. J. Williams, Hebrew Syntax, 73, §450.

[2:18]  3 tn Heb “or a metal image, a teacher of lies.” The words “What good is” in the translation are supplied from the previous parallel line. “Teacher of lies” refers to the false oracles that the so-called god would deliver through a priest. See J. J. M. Roberts, Nahum, Habakkuk, and Zephaniah (OTL), 126.

[2:18]  4 tn Heb “so that the one who forms his image trusts in it?” As earlier in the verse, כִּי (ki) is resultative.

[2:18]  5 tn Heb “to make.”
