Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Numbers 5:22

_ _ the woman shall say, Amen, Amen — The Israelites were accustomed, instead of formally repeating the words of an oath merely to say, “Amen,” a “so be it” to the imprecations it contained. The reduplication of the word was designed as an evidence of the woman’s innocence, and a willingness that God would do to her according to her desert.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Numbers 5:11-31.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Numbers 5:22

Amen, amen — That is, so let it be if I be guilty. The word is doubled by her as an evidence of her innocency, and ardent desire that God would deal with her according to her desert.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Numbers 5:22

And this water that causeth the curse shall go into thy bowels, to make [thy] belly to swell, and [thy] thigh to rot: And the woman shall say, (l) Amen, amen.

(l) That is, may it be as you wished, as in (Psalms 41:13; Deuteronomy 27:15).
