2 Kings 12:9-10

Context

12:9 Jehoiada the priest took a chest and drilled a hole in its lid. He placed it on the right side of the altar near the entrance of 1  the Lord’s temple. The priests who guarded the entrance would put into it all the silver brought to the Lord’s temple. 12:10 When they saw the chest was full of silver, the royal secretary 2  and the high priest counted the silver that had been brought to the Lord’s temple and bagged it up. 3 

1 tn Heb “on the right side of the altar as a man enters.”

2 tn Heb “the king’s scribe.”

3 tn Heb “went up and tied [it] and counted the silver that was found in the house of the Lord.” The order of the clauses has been rearranged in the translation to make better sense in English, since it seems more logical to count the money before bagging it (cf. NIV, NCV, NRSV, NLT).
