2 Kings 10:26-27

Context
10:26 They hauled out the sacred pillar of the temple of Baal and burned it. 10:27 They demolished 1  the sacred pillar of Baal and 2  the temple of Baal; it is used as 3  a latrine 4  to this very day.

1 tn Or “pulled down.”

2 tn The verb “they demolished” is repeated in the Hebrew text.

3 tn Heb “and they made it into.”

4 tn The consonantal text (Kethib) has the hapax legomenon מַחֲרָאוֹת (makharaot), “places to defecate” or “dung houses” (note the related noun חרא (khr’)/חרי (khri), “dung,” HALOT 348-49 s.v. *חֲרָאִים). The marginal reading (Qere) glosses this, perhaps euphemistically, מוֹצָאוֹת (motsaot), “outhouses.”
