1 Kings 9:6-7

Context

9:6 “But if you or your sons ever turn away from me, fail to obey the regulations and rules I instructed you to keep, 1  and decide to serve and worship other gods, 2  9:7 then I will remove Israel from the land 3  I have given them, I will abandon this temple I have consecrated with my presence, 4  and Israel will be mocked and ridiculed 5  among all the nations.

1 tn Heb “which I placed before you.”

2 tn Heb “and walk and serve other gods and bow down to them.”

3 tn Heb “I will cut off Israel from upon the surface of the land.”

4 tn Heb “and the temple which I consecrated for my name I will send away from before my face.”

sn Instead of “I will send away,” the parallel text in 2 Chr 7:20 has “I will throw away.” The two verbs sound very similar in Hebrew, so the discrepancy is likely due to an oral transmissional error.

5 tn Heb “will become a proverb and a taunt,” that is, a proverbial example of destruction and an object of reproach.
