Once the child was dead you got up and ate food!” 12:22 He replied, “While the child was still alive, I fasted and wept because I thought, 2  ‘Perhaps 3  the Lord will show pity and the child will live.

1 tc For the MT בַּעֲבוּר (baavur, “for the sake of”) we should probably read בְּעוֹד (bÿod, “while”). See the Lucianic Greek recension, the Syriac Peshitta, and the Targum.

2 tn Heb “said.”

3 tn Heb “Who knows?”
