NETNew English Translation
19 God is not a man, that he should lie,
nor a human being,#tn tn Heb “son of man.” that he should change his mind.
Has he said, and will he not do it?
Or has he spoken, and will he not make it happen?#tn The verb is the Hiphil of קוּם (qum, “to cause to rise; to make stand”). The meaning here is more of the sense of fulfilling the promises made.
