2 Samuel 6:19

Context
6:19 He then handed out to each member of the entire assembly of Israel, 1  both men and women, a portion of bread, a date cake, 2  and a raisin cake. Then all the people went home. 3 

1 tn Heb “to all the people, to all the throng of Israel.”

2 tn The Hebrew word used here אֶשְׁפָּר (’espar) is found in the OT only here and in the parallel passage found in 1 Chr 16:3. Its exact meaning is uncertain, although the context indicates that it was a food of some sort (cf. KJV “a good piece of flesh”; NRSV “a portion of meat”). The translation adopted here (“date cake”) follows the lead of the Greek translations of the LXX, Aquila, and Symmachus (cf. NASB, NIV, NLT).

3 tn Heb “and all the people went, each to his house.”
