2 Samuel 5:6-7

Context
David Occupies Jerusalem

5:6 Then the king and his men advanced to Jerusalem 1  against the Jebusites who lived in the land. The Jebusites 2  said to David, “You cannot invade this place! Even the blind and the lame will turn you back, saying, ‘David cannot invade this place!’”

5:7 But David captured the fortress of Zion (that is, the city of David).

2 tn The Hebrew text has “he” rather than “the Jebusites.” The referent has been specified in the translation for clarity. In the Syriac Peshitta and some mss of the Targum the verb is plural rather than singular.
