Ezra 10:2

Context
10:2 Then Shecaniah son of Jehiel, from the descendants of Elam, 1  addressed Ezra:

“We have been unfaithful to our God by marrying 2  foreign women from the local peoples. 3  Nonetheless, there is still hope for Israel in this regard. 4 

1 tc The translation reads with the Qere, many medieval Hebrew MSS, the LXX, the Syriac Peshitta, and Vulgate עֵילָם (’elam, “Elam”) rather than the reading עוֹלָם (’olam, “eternity”) found in the MT.

2 tn Heb “in that we have given a dwelling to.” So also in vv. 14, 17, 18.

3 tn Heb “the peoples of the lands.”

4 tn Heb “upon this.”
