Deuteronomy 21:7-8

21:7 Then they must proclaim, “Our hands have not spilled this blood, nor have we 1  witnessed the crime. 2  21:8 Do not blame 3  your people Israel whom you redeemed, O Lord, and do not hold them accountable for the bloodshed of an innocent person.” 4  Then atonement will be made for the bloodshed.

1 tn Heb “our eyes.” This is a figure of speech known as synecdoche in which the part (the eyes) is put for the whole (the entire person).

2 tn Heb “seen”; the implied object (the crime committed) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

3 tn Heb “Atone for.”

4 tn Heb “and do not place innocent blood in the midst of your people Israel.”
