1 Samuel 20:25

Context
20:25 The king sat down in his usual place by the wall, with Jonathan opposite him 1  and Abner at his side. 2  But David’s place was vacant.

1 tc Heb “and Jonathan arose.” Instead of MT’s וַיָּקָם (vayyaqam, “and he arose”; from the hollow verbal root קוּם, qum), the translation assumes a reading וַיִּקַדֵּם (vayyiqaddem, “and he was in front of”; from the verbal root קדם, qdm). See P. K. McCarter, I Samuel (AB), 338.

2 tn Heb “and Abner sat at the side of Saul.”
