2 Samuel 15:27

Context

15:27 The king said to Zadok the priest, “Are you a seer? 1  Go back to the city in peace! Your son Ahimaaz and Abiathar’s son Jonathan may go with you and Abiathar. 2 

2 Samuel 24:11

Context

24:11 When David got up the next morning, the Lord had already spoken 3  to Gad the prophet, David’s seer:

1 tn The Greek tradition understands the Hebrew word as an imperative (“see”). Most Greek mss have ἴδετε (idete); the Lucianic recension has βλέπε (blepe). It could just as well be taken as a question: “Don’t you see what is happening?” The present translation takes the word as a question, with the implication that Zadok is a priest and not a prophet (i.e., “seer”) and therefore unable to know what the future holds.

2 tn Heb “And Ahimaaz your son, and Jonathan the son of Abiathar, two of your sons, with you.” The pronominal suffix on the last word is plural, referring to Zadok and Abiathar.

3 tn Heb “and the word of the Lord came.”
