1 Chronicles 17:21-22

17:21 And who is like your people, Israel, a unique nation 1  in the earth? Their God 2  went to claim 3  a nation for himself! You made a name for yourself by doing great and awesome deeds 4  when you drove out 5  nations before your people whom you had delivered from the Egyptian empire and its gods. 6  17:22 You made Israel your very own nation for all time. 7  You, O Lord, became their God.

1 tn Heb “a nation, one.”

2 tn Heb “whose God,” or “because God.” In the Hebrew text this clause is subordinated to what precedes. The clauses are separated in the translation for stylistic reasons.

3 tn Heb “redeem” or “deliver.”

4 tn Heb “to make for yourself a name [with] great and awesome [deeds].”

5 tn Heb “to drive out.”

6 tn Heb “from Egypt, nations.” The parallel text in 2 Sam 7:23 reads “from Egypt, nations and its gods.”

7 tn Heb “and you made your people Israel your own for a people permanently.”
