Joshua 7:17-18

Context
7:17 He then made the clans of Judah approach and the clan of the Zerahites was selected. He made the clan of the Zerahites approach and Zabdi 1  was selected. 2  7:18 He then made Zabdi’s 3  family approach man by man 4  and Achan son of Carmi, son of Zabdi, son of Zerah, from the tribe of Judah, was selected.

1 tn See the note on “Zabdi” in 1 Chr 7:1.

2 tn Heb “and he selected Zabdi.” The Lord is the apparent subject. The LXX supports reading a passive (Niphal) form here, as does the immediate context.

3 tn Heb “his”; the referent (Zabdi) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

4 tn Heb “by men.”
