2 Kings 20:11

Context
20:11 Isaiah the prophet called out to the Lord, and the Lord 1  made the shadow go back ten steps on the stairs of Ahaz. 2 

1 tn Heb “he”; the referent (the Lord) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

2 tn Heb “on the steps which [the sun] had gone down, on the steps of Ahaz, back ten steps.”

sn These steps probably functioned as a type of sundial. See HALOT 614 s.v. מַעֲלָה and M. Cogan and H. Tadmor, II Kings (AB), 256.
