tnHeb “men, sons of Belial.” The Hebrew term בְּלִיַּעַל (béliyya’al) has the idea of worthlessness, without morals or scruples (HALOT133–34s.v.). Cf. NAB, NRSV “scoundrels”; TEV, CEV “worthless people”; NLT “worthless rabble.”
tc The LXX and Tg read “your” for the MT’s “their.”
tn The translation understands the relative clause as a statement by Moses, not as part of the quotation from the evildoers. See also v. 2.
