2 Samuel 6:20-21

Context
6:20 When David went home to pronounce a blessing on his own house, 1  Michal, Saul’s daughter, came out to meet him. 2  She said, “How the king of Israel has distinguished 3  himself this day! He has exposed himself today before his servants’ slave girls the way a vulgar fool 4  might do!”

6:21 David replied to Michal, “It was before the Lord! I was celebrating before the Lord, who chose me over your father and his entire family 5  and appointed me as leader over the Lord’s people Israel.

1 tn Heb “and David returned to bless his house.”

2 tn Heb “David.” The name has been replaced by the pronoun (“him”) in the translation for stylistic reasons.

3 tn Heb “honored.”

4 tn Heb “one of the foolish ones.”

5 tn Heb “all his house”; CEV “anyone else in your family.”
