1 Kings 5:9

Context
5:9 My servants will bring the timber down from Lebanon to the sea. I will send it by sea in raft-like bundles to the place you designate. 1  There I will separate the logs 2  and you can carry them away. In exchange you will supply the food I need for my royal court.” 3 

1 tn Heb “I will place them [on? as?] rafts in the sea to the place where you designate to me.” This may mean he would send them by raft, or that he would tie them in raft-like bundles, and have ships tow them down to an Israelite port.

2 tn Heb “smash them,” i.e., untie the bundles.

3 tn Heb “as for you, you will satisfy my desire by giving food for my house.”
