New Defender's Study Bible Notes
2:4 law of the LORD. Judah’s sin was greater than those of other nations, because the people of Judah uniquely had God’s law, and yet had despised it.
2:9 height. The exploits of the “giants” were still remembered some six hundred or more years after the conquests of Moses and Joshua. Compare Deuteronomy 2:10-21. They had been actual living men, possibly demonically controlled, but certainly not mere mythical creatures.
2:12 Nazarites wine to drink. The Nazarites were dedicated to lives of abstinence from wine and strong drink (Numbers 6:1-8), and the prophets were called and trained to prophesy God’s Word. It is doubly sinful not only to disobey God but also to induce or compel others to do so.
