2 Samuel 4:7


They had entered 1  the house while Ish-bosheth 2  was resting on his bed in his bedroom. They mortally wounded him 3  and then cut off his head. 4  Taking his head, 5  they traveled on the way of the Arabah all that night.

NET © Notes

tn After the concluding disjunctive clause at the end of v. 6, the author now begins a more detailed account of the murder and its aftermath.

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

tn Heb “they struck him down and killed him.” The expression is a verbal hendiadys.

tn Heb “and they removed his head.” The Syriac Peshitta and Vulgate lack these words.

tc The Lucianic Greek recension lacks the words “his head.”
