2 Samuel 6:5

Context
6:5 while David and all Israel 1  were energetically celebrating before the Lord, singing 2  and playing various stringed instruments, 3  tambourines, rattles, 4  and cymbals.

1 tn Heb “all the house of Israel.”

2 tc Heb “were celebrating before the Lord with all woods of fir” (cf. KJV, ASV, NASB). If the text is retained, the last expression must be elliptical, referring to musical instruments made from fir wood. But it is preferable to emend the text in light of 1 Chr 13:8, which reads “were celebrating before the Lord with all strength and with songs.”

3 tn Heb “with zithers [?] and with harps.”

4 tn That is, “sistrums” (so NAB, NIV); ASV, NASB, NRSV, CEV, NLT “castanets.”
