Judges 1:15-16

Context
1:15 She answered, “Please give me a special present. 1  Since you have given me land in the Negev, now give me springs of water.” So Caleb gave her both the upper and lower springs. 2 

1:16 Now the descendants of the Kenite, Moses’ father-in-law, went up with the people of Judah from the City of Date Palm Trees to Arad in the desert of Judah, 3  located in the Negev. 4  They went and lived with the people of Judah. 5 

1 tn Elsewhere the Hebrew word בְרָכָה (vÿrakhah) is often translated “blessing,” but here it refers to a gift (as in Gen 33:11; 1 Sam 25:27; 30:26; and 2 Kgs 5:15).

2 tn Some translations regard the expressions “springs of water” (גֻּלֹּת מָיִם, gullot mayim) and “springs” (גֻּלֹּת) as place names here (cf. NRSV).

3 tc Part of the Greek ms tradition lacks the words “of Judah.”

4 tn Heb “[to] the Desert of Judah in the Negev, Arad.”

5 tn The phrase “of Judah” is supplied here in the translation. Some ancient textual witnesses read, “They went and lived with the Amalekites.” This reading, however, is probably influenced by 1 Sam 15:6 (see also Num 24:20-21).
