1 Samuel 25:8-10

Context
25:8 Ask your own servants; they can tell you! May my servants find favor in your sight, for we have come 1  at the time of a holiday. Please provide us – your servants 2  and your son David – with whatever you can spare.” 3 

25:9 So David’s servants went and spoke all these words to Nabal in David’s name. Then they paused. 25:10 But Nabal responded to David’s servants, “Who is David, and who is this son of Jesse? This is a time when many servants are breaking away from their masters!

1 tc The translation follows many medieval Hebrew mss in reading בָּאנוּ (banu, “we have come”) rather than the MT’s בָּנוּ (banu, “we have built”).

2 tn This refers to the ten servants sent by David.

3 tn Heb “whatever your hand will find.”
