NET © Notes

tn Heb “he”; the referent (Sheba) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

tc In keeping with the form of the name in v. 15, the translation deletes the “and” found in the MT.

tc The translation follows the Qere, many medieval Hebrew mss, and the ancient versions in reading וַיִּקָּהֲלוּ (vayyiqqahalu, “and they were gathered together”) rather than the Kethib of the MT וַיִּקְלֻהוּ (vayyiqluhu, “and they cursed him”). The Kethib is the result of metathesis.
