2 Kings 8:19

8:19 But the Lord was unwilling to destroy Judah. He preserved Judah for the sake of 1  his servant David to whom he had promised a perpetual dynasty. 2 

1 tn The Hebrew has only one sentence, “and the Lord was unwilling to destroy Judah for the sake of.” The translation divides it for the sake of clarity.

2 tn Heb “just as he had promised to give him and his sons a lamp all the days.” The metaphorical “lamp” symbolizes the Davidic dynasty; this is reflected in the translation.
