NET © Notes

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

tn Heb “Cush” (so NASB); NIV, NCV “the Cushite king of Egypt.”

tn Heb “heard concerning Tirhakah king of Cush, ‘He has come out to fight with you.’”

tn The Hebrew text has, “and he heard and he sent,” but the parallel in 2 Kgs 19:9 has וַיָּשָׁב וַיִּשְׁלַח (vayyashav vayyishlakh, “and he returned and he sent”), i.e., “he again sent.”
