2 Samuel 15:2-4

Context
15:2 Now Absalom used to get up early and stand beside the road that led to the city gate. Whenever anyone came by who had a complaint to bring to the king for arbitration, Absalom would call out to him, “What city are you from?” The person would answer, “I, your servant, 1  am from one of the tribes of Israel.” 15:3 Absalom would then say to him, “Look, your claims are legitimate and appropriate. 2  But there is no representative of the king who will listen to you.” 15:4 Absalom would then say, “If only they would make me 3  a judge in the land! Then everyone who had a judicial complaint 4  could come to me and I would make sure he receives a just settlement.”

1 tn Heb “your servant.” So also in vv. 8, 15, 21.

2 tn Heb “good and straight.”

3 tn Heb “Who will make me?”

4 tn Heb “a complaint and a judgment.” The expression is a hendiadys.
