NET © Notes

tn Heb “and the king, Rehoboam, strengthened himself in Jerusalem and ruled.”

tn Heb “Rehoboam.” The recurrence of the proper name here is redundant in terms of contemporary English style, so the pronoun has been used in the translation instead.

tn Heb “the city where the Lord chose to place his name from all the tribes of Israel.”

tn Heb “his”; the referent has been specified in the translation for clarity.
