14:9 Kedorlaomer king of Elam, Tidal king of nations, 4  Amraphel king of Shinar, and Arioch king of Ellasar. Four kings fought against 5  five.

1 tn The sentence begins with the temporal indicator וַיְהִי (vayÿhi) followed by “in the days of.”

2 sn Shinar (also in v. 9) is the region of Babylonia.

3 tn Or “king of Goyim.” The Hebrew term גּוֹיִם (goyim) means “nations,” but a number of modern translations merely transliterate the Hebrew (cf. NEB “Goyim”; NIV, NRSV “Goiim”).

4 tn Or “Goyim.” See the note on the word “nations” in 14:1.

5 tn The Hebrew text has simply “against.” The word “fought” is supplied in the translation for stylistic reasons.
