2 Kings 11:15

Context
11:15 Jehoiada the priest ordered the officers of the units of hundreds, who were in charge of the army, 1  “Bring her outside the temple to the guards. 2  Put the sword to anyone who follows her.” The priest gave this order because he had decided she should not be executed in the Lord’s temple. 3 

2 Kings 11:18

Context
11:18 All the people of the land went and demolished 4  the temple of Baal. They smashed its altars and idols 5  to bits. 6  They killed Mattan the priest of Baal in front of the altar. Jehoiada the priest 7  then placed guards at the Lord’s temple.

1 tn The Hebrew text also has, “and said to them.” This is redundant in English and has not been translated.

2 tn Heb “ranks.”

3 tn Heb “for the priest had said, ‘Let her not be put to death in the house of the Lord.’”

4 tn Or “tore down.”

5 tn Or “images.”

6 tn The Hebrew construction translated “smashed…to bits” is emphatic. The adverbial infinitive absolute (הֵיטֵב [hetev], “well”) accompanying the Piel form of the verb שָׁבַר (shavar), “break,” suggests thorough demolition.

7 tn Heb “the priest.” Jehoiada’s name is added for clarification.
