Verse 14. - And I will satiate; literally, water (same word as in Psalm 36:8). The "fatness" means the fat parts of the thank offerings, which were given to the priests (Leviticus 7:34). Satisfied. "Satiated" would be a happier rendering. The word is different from that rendered "satiate" just above.
