2 Samuel 6:1

Context
David Brings the Ark to Jerusalem

6:1 David again assembled 1  all the best 2  men in Israel, thirty thousand in number.

1 tn The translation understands the verb to be a defective spelling of וַיְּאֱסֹף (vayyÿesof) due to quiescence of the letter א (alef). The root therefore is אסף (’sf, “to gather”). The Masoretes, however, pointed the verb as וַיֹּסֶף (vayyosef), understanding it to be a form of יָסַף (yasaf, “to add”). This does not fit the context, which calls for a verb of gathering.

2 tn Or “chosen.”
