2 Samuel 6:7-8

Context
6:7 The Lord was so furious with Uzzah, 1  he 2  killed him on the spot 3  for his negligence. 4  He died right there beside the ark of God.

6:8 David was angry because the Lord attacked 5  Uzzah; so he called that place Perez Uzzah, 6  which remains its name to this very day.

1 tn Heb “and the anger of the Lord burned against Uzzah.”

2 tn Heb “God.”

3 tc Heb “there.” Since this same term occurs later in the verse it is translated “on the spot” here for stylistic reasons.

4 tc The phrase “his negligence” is absent from the LXX.

5 tn Heb “because the Lord broke out [with] a breaking out [i.e., an outburst] against Uzzah.”

6 sn The name Perez Uzzah means in Hebrew “the outburst [against] Uzzah.”
