Zechariah 10:6

Context

10:6 “I (says the Lord) will strengthen the kingdom 1  of Judah and deliver the people of Joseph 2  and will bring them back 3  because of my compassion for them. They will be as though I had never rejected them, for I am the Lord their God and therefore I will hear them.

1 tn Heb “the house.”

2 tn Or “the kingdom of Israel”; Heb “the house of Joseph.”

sn Joseph is mentioned here instead of the usual Israel (but see 2 Sam 19:20; Ps 78:67; 80:1; 81:5; Ezek 37:16; Amos 5:6, 15; 6:6) because of the exodus motif that follows in vv. 8-11.

3 tc The anomalous MT reading וְחוֹשְׁבוֹתִים (vÿkhoshÿvotim) should probably be וַהֲשִׁי בוֹתִם (vahashi votim), the Hiphil perfect consecutive of שׁוּב (shuv), “return” (cf. Jer 12:15).
