Judges 1:5-7

Context
1:5 They met 1  Adoni-Bezek at Bezek and fought him. They defeated the Canaanites and Perizzites. 1:6 When Adoni-Bezek ran away, they chased him and captured him. Then they cut off his thumbs and big toes. 1:7 Adoni-Bezek said, “Seventy kings, with thumbs and big toes cut off, used to lick up 2  food scraps 3  under my table. God has repaid me for what I did to them.” 4  They brought him to Jerusalem, 5  where he died.

1 tn Or “found.”

2 tn Elsewhere this verb usually carries the sense of “to gather; to pick up; to glean,” but “lick up” seems best here in light of the peculiar circumstances described by Adoni-Bezek.

3 tn The words “food scraps” are not in the Hebrew text, but are implied.

4 tn Heb “Just as I did, so God has repaid me.” Note that the phrase “to them” has been supplied in the translation to clarify what is meant.
