2 Kings 16:6

Context
16:6 (At that time King Rezin of Syria 1  recovered Elat for Syria; he drove the Judahites from there. 2  Syrians 3  arrived in Elat and live there to this very day.)

1 tc Some prefer to read “the king of Edom” and “for Edom” here. The names Syria (Heb “Aram,” אֲרָם, ’aram) and Edom (אֱדֹם, ’edom) are easily confused in the Hebrew consonantal script.

2 tn Heb “from Elat.”

3 tc The consonantal text (Kethib), supported by many medieval Hebrew mss, the Syriac version, and some mss of the Targum and Vulgate, read “Syrians” (Heb “Arameans”). The marginal reading (Qere), supported by the LXX, Targums, and Vulgate, reads “Edomites.”
