1 Kings 11:19-20

Context
11:19 Pharaoh liked Hadad so well 1  he gave him his sister-in-law (Queen Tahpenes’ sister) as a wife. 2  11:20 Tahpenes’ sister gave birth to his son, 3  named Genubath. Tahpenes raised 4  him in Pharaoh’s palace; Genubath grew up in Pharaoh’s palace among Pharaoh’s sons.

1 tn Heb “and Hadad found great favor in the eyes of Pharaoh.”

2 tn Heb “and he gave to him a wife, the sister of his wife, the sister of Tahpenes the queen.”

3 tn Heb “bore him Genubath his son.”

4 tc The Hebrew text reads וַתִּגְמְלֵהוּ (vattigmÿlehu, “weaned him”) but a slight alteration of the consonantal text yields וַתִּגְדְלֵהוּ (vattigdÿlehu, “raised him”), which seems to make better sense.
