2 Chronicles 1:10-11

Context
1:10 Now give me wisdom and discernment so 1  I can effectively lead this nation. 2  Otherwise 3  no one is able 4  to make judicial decisions for 5  this great nation of yours.” 6 

1:11 God said to Solomon, “Because you desire this, 7  and did not ask for riches, wealth, and honor, or for vengeance on your enemies, 8  and because you did not ask for long life, 9  but requested wisdom and discernment so you can make judicial decisions for my people over whom I have made you king,

1 tn The cohortative with prefixed vav (ו) following the imperative here indicates purpose/result.

2 tn Heb “so I may go out before this nation and come in.” The expression “go out…and come in” here means “to lead” (see HALOT 425 s.v. יצא qal.4).

3 tn Heb “for.” The word “otherwise” is used to reflect the logical sense of the statement.

4 tn Heb “who is able?” The rhetorical question anticipates the answer, “no one.”

5 tn Heb “to judge.”

6 tn Heb “these numerous people of yours.”

7 tn Heb “because this was in your heart.”

8 tn Heb “the life of those who hate you.”

9 tn Heb “many days.”
