1 Kings 21:26

Context
21:26 He was so wicked he worshiped the disgusting idols, 1  just like the Amorites 2  whom the Lord had driven out from before the Israelites.)

1 tn The Hebrew word used here, גִלּוּלִים (gillulim) is always used as a disdainful reference to idols. It is generally thought to have originally referred to “dung pellets” (cf. KBL 183 s.v. גִלּוּלִים). It is only one of several terms used in this way, such as אֱלִילִים (’elilim, “worthless things”) and הֲבָלִים (havalim, “vanities” or “empty winds”).

2 tn Heb “He acted very abominably by walking after the disgusting idols, according to all which the Amorites had done.”
