2 Chronicles 20:12

20:12 Our God, will you not judge them? For we are powerless against this huge army that attacks us! We don’t know what we should do; we look to you for help.” 1 

2 Chronicles 20:23

20:23 The Ammonites and Moabites attacked the men from Mount Seir 2  and annihilated them. 3  When they had finished off the men 4  of Seir, they attacked and destroyed one another. 5 

1 tn Heb “for [or “indeed”] upon you are our eyes.”

2 tn Heb “the sons of Ammon and Moab stood against the residents of Mount Seir.”

3 tn Heb “to annihilate and to destroy.”

4 tn Heb “residents.”

5 tn Heb “they helped, each one his fellow, for destruction.” The verb עָזַר (’azar), traditionally understood as the well-attested verb meaning “to help,” is an odd fit in this context. It is possible that it is from a homonymic root, perhaps meaning to “attack.” This root is attested in Ugaritic in a nominal form meaning “young man, warrior, hero.” For a discussion of the proposed root, see HALOT 811 s.v. II עזר.
