Judges 9:8


“The trees were determined to go out 1  and choose a king for themselves. 2  They said to the olive tree, ‘Be our king!’ 3 


Jud 8:22,23; 2Ki 14:9; Eze 17:3-10; Da 4:10-18

NET © Notes

tn Heb “Going they went, the trees.” The precise emphatic force of the infinitive absolute (“Going”) is not entirely clear. Perhaps here it indicates determination, as in Gen 31:30, where one might translate, “You have insisted on going away.”

tn Heb “to anoint [with oil] over them a king.”

tn Or “Rule over us!”
