8:17 Zadok son of Ahitub and Ahimelech son of Abiathar 1 were priests; Seraiah was scribe;
2 Samuel 20:25
20:25 Sheva was the scribe, and Zadok and Abiathar were the priests.
1 tc Here Ahimelech is called “the son of Abiathar,” but NCV, CEV, and REB reverse this to conform with 1 Sam 22:20. Most recent English versions (e.g., NAB, NASB, NIV, NRSV, NLT) retain the order found in the MT.
