2 Kings 22:11

Context
22:11 When the king heard the words of the law scroll, he tore his clothes.

2 Kings 22:19

Context
22:19 ‘You displayed a sensitive spirit 1  and humbled yourself before the Lord when you heard how I intended to make this place and its residents into an appalling example of an accursed people. 2  You tore your clothes and wept before me, and I have heard you,’ says the Lord.

1 tn Heb “Because your heart was tender.”

2 tn Heb “how I said concerning this place and its residents to become [an object of] horror and [an example of] a curse.” The final phrase (“horror and a curse”) refers to Judah becoming a prime example of an accursed people. In curse formulations they would be held up as a prime example of divine judgment. For an example of such a curse, see Jer 29:22.
