He will make the woman drink the water of bitterness that brings the curse, and the water that brings the curse will enter into her for bitterness. Bible see other translations

“for bitterness.” The exact meaning of this phrase is unknown, and the English versions render it differently, trying to bring out its meaning. The point is clear, however, that if the woman is guilty the water will cause bitter things to happen to her.
