1 Kings 11:38-39

Context
11:38 You must obey 1  all I command you to do, follow my instructions, 2  do what I approve, 3  and keep my rules and commandments, like my servant David did. Then I will be with you and establish for you a lasting dynasty, as I did for David; 4  I will give you Israel. 11:39 I will humiliate David’s descendants because of this, 5  but not forever.” 6 

1 tn Heb “If you obey.” In the Hebrew text v. 38 is actually one long conditional sentence, which has been broken into two parts in the translation for stylistic purposes.

2 tn Heb “walk in my ways.”

3 tn Heb “do what is right in my eyes.”

4 tn Heb “I will build for you a permanent house, like I built for David.”

5 sn Because of this. Reference is made to the idolatry mentioned earlier.

6 tn Heb “but not all the days.”
