Context
NETBible

But all the evil and worthless men among those who had gone with David said, “Since they didn’t go with us, 1  we won’t give them any of the loot we retrieved! They may take only their wives and children. Let them lead them away and be gone!”

NET © Notes

tc Heb “with me.” The singular is used rather than the plural because the group is being treated as a singular entity, in keeping with Hebrew idiom. It is not necessary to read “with us,” rather than the MT “with me,” although the plural can be found here in a few medieval Hebrew mss. See also the LXX, Syriac Peshitta, and Vulgate, although these versions may simply reflect an understanding of the idiom as found in the MT rather than a different textual reading.
