2 Samuel 12:4Context
“When a traveler arrived at the rich man’s home, 1 he did not want to use one of his own sheep or cattle to feed 2 the traveler who had come to visit him. 3 Instead, he took the poor man’s lamb and cooked 4 it for the man who had come to visit him.”

1 tn Heb “came to the rich man.” In the translation “arrived at the rich man’s home” has been used for stylistic reasons.
2 tn Heb “and he refused to take from his flock and from his herd to prepare [a meal] for.”
3 tn Heb “who had come to him” (also a second time later in this verse). The word “visit” has been supplied in the translation for stylistic reasons and for clarity.
4 tn Heb “and prepared.”
