2 Samuel 10:6Context
When the Ammonites realized that David was disgusted with them, 1 they 2 sent and hired 20,000 foot soldiers from Aram Beth Rehob and Aram Zobah, 3 in addition to 1,000 men from the king of Maacah and 12,000 men from Ish-tob. 4

1 tn Heb “that they were a stench [i.e., disgusting] with David.”
2 tn Heb “the Ammonites.”
3 tn Or “Arameans of Beth Rehob and Arameans of Zobah.”
4 tn Or perhaps “the men of Tob.” The ancient versions (the LXX, the Syriac Peshitta, and Vulgate) understand the name to be “Ish-tob.” It is possible that “Ish” is dittographic and that we should read simply “Tob,” a reading adopted by a number of recent English versions.
