1 Samuel 30:3

Context

30:3 When David and his men came to the city, they found it burned. 1  Their wives, sons, and daughters had been taken captive.

1 Samuel 30:15

Context
30:15 David said to him, “Can you take us down to this raiding party?” He said, “Swear to me by God that you will not kill me or hand me over to my master, and I will take you down to this raiding party.”

1 Samuel 30:23

Context

30:23 But David said, “No! You shouldn’t do this, my brothers. Look at what the Lord has given us! 2  He has protected us and has delivered into our hands the raiding party that came against us.

1 tn Heb “and David and his men came to the city, and look, it was burned with fire.”

2 tc This clause is difficult in the MT. The present translation accepts the text as found in the MT and understands this clause to be elliptical, with an understood verb such as “look” or “consider.” On the other hand, the LXX seems to reflect a slightly different Hebrew text, reading “after” where the MT has “my brothers.” The Greek translation yields the following translation: “You should not do this after the Lord has delivered us.” Although the Greek reading should be taken seriously, it seems better to follow the MT here.
