1 Kings 2:8-9

Context

2:8 “Note well, you still have to contend with Shimei son of Gera, the Benjaminite from Bahurim, 1  who tried to call down upon me a horrible judgment when I went to Mahanaim. 2  He came down and met me at the Jordan, and I solemnly promised 3  him by the Lord, ‘I will not strike you down 4  with the sword.’ 2:9 But now 5  don’t treat him as if he were innocent. You are a wise man and you know how to handle him; 6  make sure he has a bloody death.” 7 

1 tn Heb “Look, with you is Shimei….”

2 tn Heb “and he cursed me with a horrible curse on the day I went to Mahanaim.”

3 tn Or “swore an oath to.”

4 tn Heb “kill you.”

5 tc The Lucianic recension of the Old Greek and the Vulgate have here “you” rather than “now.” The two words are homonyms in Hebrew.

6 tn Heb “what you should do to him.”

7 tn Heb “bring his grey hair down in blood [to] Sheol.”
