1 tn The groupings in the list that follows, as well as the conjunctions (vav-consecutives in Hebrew), reflect those of the Hebrew text.

2 tn The name means “daughter of Shua.” Shua is identified in Gen 38:2 as a “Canaanite man.”

3 tn Heb “was evil in the eyes of the Lord, so he [i.e., the Lord] killed him [i.e., Er].”

4 tn Heb “his”; the referent (Judah) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

5 tc Many medieval Hebrew mss, some LXX mss, and Syriac read “Darda” (see 1 Kgs 4:31 ET = 1 Kgs 5:11 HT).

6 tn Heb “sons.” The Hebrew text has the plural, but only one son is listed.

7 tc The Hebrew text has “Achar,” which means “disaster,” but a few medieval Hebrew mss read “Achan.” See Josh 7:1.

8 tn Heb “the troubler of Israel who was unfaithful with respect to the devoted [things].”

9 tn Heb “sons.” The Hebrew text has the plural, but only one son is listed.
