1 Samuel 18:18

Context

18:18 David said to Saul, “Who am I? Who are my relatives or the clan of my father 1  in Israel that I should become the king’s son-in-law?”

1 tn Heb “Who are my relatives, the clan of my father?” The term חַי (khay), traditionally understood as “my life,” is here a rare word meaning “family, kinfolk” (see HALOT 309 s.v. III חַי). The phrase “clan of my father” may be a scribal gloss explaining the referent of this rare word.
