2 Samuel 3:13-14

Context
3:13 So David said, “Good! I will make an agreement with you. I ask only one thing from you. You will not see my face unless you bring Saul’s daughter Michal when you come to visit me.” 1 

3:14 David sent messengers to Ish-bosheth son of Saul with this demand: 2  “Give me my wife Michal whom I acquired 3  for a hundred Philistine foreskins.”

1 tn The words “when you come to see my face,” though found in the Hebrew text, are somewhat redundant given the similar expression in the earlier part of the verse. The words are absent from the Syriac Peshitta.

2 tn Heb “to Ish-bosheth son of Saul saying.” To avoid excessive sibilance (especially when read aloud) the translation renders “saying” as “with this demand.”

3 tn Heb “whom I betrothed to myself.”
