2 Chronicles 20:25-28

Context
20:25 Jehoshaphat and his men 1  went to gather the plunder; they found a huge amount of supplies, clothing 2  and valuable items. They carried away everything they could. 3  There was so much plunder, it took them three days to haul it off. 4 

20:26 On the fourth day they assembled in the Valley of Berachah, where 5  they praised the Lord. So that place is called the Valley of Berachah 6  to this very day. 20:27 Then all the men of Judah and Jerusalem returned joyfully to Jerusalem with Jehoshaphat leading them; the Lord had given them reason to rejoice over their enemies. 20:28 They entered Jerusalem to the sound of stringed instruments and trumpets and proceeded to the temple of the Lord.

1 tn Or “army.”

2 tc The MT reads פְגָרִים (fÿgarim, “corpses”), but this seems odd among a list of plunder. A few medieval Hebrew mss and the Vulgate read בְגָדִים (vÿgadim, “clothing”), which fits the context much better.

3 tn Heb “and they snatched away for themselves so that there was no carrying away.”

4 tn Heb “and they were three days looting the plunder for it was great.”

5 tn Heb “for there.”

6 sn The name Berachah, which means “blessing” in Hebrew, is derived from the verbal root “to praise [or “to bless”],” which appears earlier in the verse.
