2 Chronicles 20:2

Context
20:2 Messengers 1  arrived and reported to Jehoshaphat, “A huge army is attacking you from the other side of the Dead Sea, 2  from the direction of Edom. 3  Look, they are in Hazezon Tamar (that is, En Gedi).”

1 tn Heb “they”; the implied referent (messengers) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

2 tn Heb “the Sea”; in context (“from the direction of Edom”) this must refer to the Dead Sea, which has been specified in the translation for clarity (cf. NEB, NLT).

3 tc Most Hebrew mss read “from Aram” (i.e., Syria), but this must be a corruption of “Edom,” which is the reading of the LXX and Vulgate.
