2 Samuel 7:23-24

Context
7:23 Who is like your people, Israel, a unique nation 1  on the earth? Their God 2  went 3  to claim 4  a nation for himself and to make a name for himself! You did great and awesome acts for your land, 5  before your people whom you delivered for yourself from the Egyptian empire and its gods. 6  7:24 You made Israel your very own people for all time. 7  You, O Lord, became their God.

1 tn Heb “a nation, one.”

2 tn Heb “whose God” or “because God.” In the Hebrew text this clause is subordinated to what precedes. The clauses are separated in the translation for stylistic reasons.

3 tn The verb is plural in Hebrew, agreeing grammatically with the divine name, which is a plural of degree.

4 tn Heb “redeem.”

5 tn Heb “and to do for you [plural form] the great [thing] and awesome [things] for your land.”

6 tn Heb “from Egypt, nations and their gods.” The LXX has “nations and tents,” which reflects a mistaken metathesis of letters in אֶלֹהָיו (elohav, “its gods”) and אֹהָלָיו (’ohalav, “its tents”).

7 tn Heb “and you established for yourself your people Israel for yourself for a people permanently.”
