2 Samuel 14:25-26

Context

14:25 Now in all Israel everyone acknowledged that there was no man as handsome as Absalom. 1  From the sole of his feet to the top of his head he was perfect in appearance. 2  14:26 When he would shave his head – at the end of every year he used to shave his head, for it grew too long 3  and he would shave it – he used to weigh the hair of his head at three pounds 4  according to the king’s weight.

1 tn Heb “Like Absalom there was not a handsome man in all Israel to boast exceedingly.”

2 tn Heb “there was not in him a blemish.”

3 tn Heb “for it was heavy upon him.”

4 tn Heb “two hundred shekels.” The modern equivalent would be about three pounds (1.4 kg).
