2 Samuel 21:1-2

Context
The Gibeonites Demand Revenge

21:1 During David’s reign there was a famine for three consecutive years. So David inquired of the Lord. 1  The Lord said, “It is because of Saul and his bloodstained family, 2  because he murdered the Gibeonites.”

21:2 So the king summoned the Gibeonites and spoke with them. (Now the Gibeonites were not descendants of Israel; they were a remnant of the Amorites. The Israelites had made a promise to 3  them, but Saul tried to kill them because of his zeal for the people of Israel and Judah.)

1 tn Heb “sought the face of the Lord.”

2 tn Heb “and the house of bloodshed.”

3 tn Heb “swore an oath to.”
