New Defender's Study Bible Notes
28:35 sore botch. A severe ulcer or tumor in the skin.
28:37 a proverb, and a byword. Here is another prophecy dealing with Israel, remarkably fulfilled over a thousand years later. Not only was it continuously fulfilled during the almost 1900 years when the people of Israel had no homeland, but even with the establishment of the nation of Israel in 1948, Israel continues to be “an astonishment, a proverb, and a byword among all nations.” In addition, most of its people worldwide continue to believe in the evolutionary “gods” of nature.
