1 Chronicles 20:3

Context
20:3 He removed the city’s residents and made them do hard labor with saws, iron picks, and axes. 1  This was his policy 2  with all the Ammonite cities. Then David and all the army returned to Jerusalem.

1 tc The Hebrew text reads “saws,” but since saws were just mentioned, it is preferable to emend מְגֵרוֹת (mÿgerot, “saws”) to מַגְזְרוֹת (magzÿrot, “axes”).

2 tn Heb “and so he would do.”
