2 Samuel 21:14

Context

21:14 They buried the bones of Saul and his son Jonathan in the land of Benjamin at Zela in the grave of his father Kish. After they had done everything 1  that the king had commanded, God responded to their prayers 2  for the land.

1 tc Many medieval Hebrew mss have here כְּכֹל (kÿkhol, “according to all”).

2 tn Heb “was entreated.” The verb is an example of the so-called niphal tolerativum, with the sense that God allowed himself to be supplicated through prayer (cf. GKC 137 §51.c).
