2 Kings 5:22

Context
5:22 He answered, “Everything is fine. 1  My master sent me with this message, ‘Look, two servants of the prophets just arrived from the Ephraimite hill country. 2  Please give them a talent 3  of silver and two suits of clothes.’”

1 tn Heb “peace.”

2 tn Heb “Look now, here, two servants came to me from the Ephraimite hill country, from the sons of the prophets.”

3 tn The Hebrew term כִּכָּר (kikkar, “circle”) refers generally to something that is round. When used of metals it can refer to a disk-shaped weight made of the metal or to a standard unit of weight, generally regarded as a talent. Since the accepted weight for a talent of metal is about 75 pounds, this would have amounted to about 75 pounds of silver (cf. NCV, NLT, CEV).
