Context
NETBible

And you didn’t stop there, O Lord God! You have also spoken about the future of your servant’s family. 1  Is this your usual way of dealing with men, 2  O Lord God?

NET © Notes

tn Heb “and this was small in your eyes, O Lord God, so you spoke concerning the house of your servant for a distance.”

tn Heb “and this [is] the law of man”; KJV “is this the manner of man, O Lord God?”; NAB “this too you have shown to man”; NRSV “May this be instruction for the people, O Lord God!” This part of the verse is very enigmatic; no completely satisfying solution has yet been suggested. The present translation tries to make sense of the MT by understanding the phrase as a question that underscores the uniqueness of God’s dealings with David as described here. The parallel passage in 1 Chr 17:17 reads differently (see the note there).
