1 Kings 16:2

Context
16:2 “I raised you up 1  from the dust and made you ruler over my people Israel. Yet you followed in Jeroboam’s footsteps 2  and encouraged my people Israel to sin; their sins have made me angry. 3 

1 tn The Hebrew text has “because” at the beginning of the sentence. In the Hebrew text vv. 2-3 are one sentence comprised of a causal clause giving the reason for divine punishment (v. 2) and the main clause announcing the punishment (v. 3). The translation divides this sentence for stylistic reasons.

2 tn Heb “walked in the way of Jeroboam.”

3 tn Heb “angering me by their sins.”
