1 Chronicles 12:38-39

Context

12:38 All these men were warriors who were ready to march. 1  They came to Hebron to make David king over all Israel by acclamation; 2  all the rest of the Israelites also were in agreement that David should become king. 3  12:39 They spent three days feasting 4  there with David, for their relatives had given them provisions.

1 tc Heb “all these [were] men of war, helpers of the battle line.” The present translation assumes an emendation of עֹדְרֵי (’odÿrey, “helpers of”) to עֹרְכֵי, (’orÿkhey, “prepared for”).

2 tn Heb “with a complete heart they came to Hebron to make David king over all Israel.”

3 tn Heb “and also all the rest of Israel [was of] one mind to make David king.”

4 tn Heb “eating and drinking.”
