1 Chronicles 11:5-7

Context
11:5 The residents of Jebus said to David, “You cannot invade this place!” But David captured the fortress of Zion (that is, the City of David). 11:6 1  David said, “Whoever attacks 2  the Jebusites first will become commanding general!” 3  So Joab son of Zeruiah attacked 4  first and became commander. 5  11:7 David lived in the fortress; for this reason it is called the City of David.

1 sn Verse 6 inserts into the narrative parenthetical information about Joab’s role in the conquest of the city. Verse 7 then picks up where v. 5 left off.

2 tn Or perhaps “strikes down.”

3 tn Heb “head and officer.”

4 tn Heb “went up.”

5 tn Heb “head.”
