2 Samuel 21:4

Context

21:4 The Gibeonites said to him, “We 1  have no claim to silver or gold from Saul or from his family, 2  nor would we be justified in putting to death anyone in Israel.” David asked, 3  “What then are you asking me to do for you?”

1 tc The translation follows the Qere and several medieval Hebrew mss in reading לָנוּ (lanu, “to us”) rather than the MT לִי (li, “to me”). But for a contrary opinion see S. R. Driver, Notes on the Hebrew Text and the Topography of the Books of Samuel, 53, 350.

2 tn Heb “house.”

3 tn Heb “and he said”; the referent (David) has been specified in the translation for clarity.
