2 Samuel 2:3-4

Context
2:3 David also brought along the men who were with him, each with his family. They settled in the cities 1  of Hebron. 2:4 The men of Judah came and there they anointed David as king over the people 2  of Judah.

David was told, 3  “The people 4  of Jabesh Gilead are the ones who buried Saul.”

1 tc The expression “the cities of Hebron” is odd; we would expect the noun to be in the singular, if used at all. Although the Syriac Peshitta has the expected reading “in Hebron,” the MT is clearly the more difficult reading and should probably be retained here.

2 tn Heb “house.”

3 tn Heb “and they told David.” The subject appears to be indefinite, allowing one to translate the verb as passive with David as subject.

4 tn Heb “men.”
