Marginal rendering in the Revised Version of the Hebrew "ḳ ereẓ " (Jeremiah 46:20 ), where "destruction" is given in the texts of both English versions. For arguments in favor of the former rendering, now generally adopted, see the various Hebrew lexicons and Bible commentaries, and Field, "Origenis Hexaplorum quæ Supersunt sive Veterum Interpretum Græ corum in Totum Vetus Testamentum. Fragmenta." The Septuagint has ἀ π ό σ π α σ μ α the Vulgate "stimulator." Some, comparing Micah 2:13 , have suggested "poreẓ " (invader) instead of "ḳ ereẓ " (Cheyne and Black, "Encyc. Bib." 2:1588), but there seems to be no sufficient reason for a textual emendation.
