2 Samuel 15:19-20

Context

15:19 Then the king said to Ittai the Gittite, “Why should you come with us? Go back and stay with the new 1  king, for you are a foreigner and an exile from your own country. 2  15:20 It seems like you arrived just yesterday. Today should I make you wander around by going with us? I go where I must go. But as for you, go back and take your men 3  with you. May genuine loyal love 4  protect 5  you!”

1 tn The word “new” is not in the Hebrew text, but is supplied in the translation to make it clear that David refers to Absalom, not himself.

2 tn Heb “place.”

3 tn Heb “brothers,” but see v. 22.

4 tn Heb “loyal love and truth.” The expression is a hendiadys.

5 tn Heb “be with.”
