1 Samuel 15:5

Context
15:5 Saul proceeded to the city 1  of Amalek, where he set an ambush 2  in the wadi. 3 

1 tc The LXX has the plural here, “cities.”

2 tc The translation follows the LXX and Vulgate which assume a reading וַיָּאָרֶב (vayyaarev, “and he set an ambush,” from the root ארב [’rv] with quiescence of alef) rather than the MT, which has וַיָּרֶב (vayyareb, “and he contended,” from the root ריב [ryv]).

3 tn That is, “the dry stream bed.”
