Judges 9:41-42

Context

9:42 The next day the Shechemites 3  came out to the field. When Abimelech heard about it, 4 

1 tc Heb “stayed.” Some scholars revise the vowel pointing on this verb from that of the MT, resulting in the translation “and he returned to.” The Lucianic recension of the LXX understands the word in this way.

3 tn Heb “the people”; the referent (the Shechemites) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

4 tn Heb “And they told Abimelech.”
