1 Kings 11:36

Context
11:36 I will leave 1  his son one tribe so my servant David’s dynasty may continue to serve me 2  in Jerusalem, the city I have chosen as my home. 3 

1 tn Heb “give.”

2 tn Heb “so there might be a lamp for David my servant all the days before me in Jerusalem.” The metaphorical “lamp” symbolizes the Davidic dynasty. Because this imagery is unfamiliar to the modern reader, the translation “so my servant David’s dynasty may continue to serve me” has been used.

3 tn Heb “so there might be a lamp for David my servant all the days before me in Jerusalem, the city which I have chosen for myself to put my name there.”
