NET © Notes

tn Heb “son of Haggith,” but since this formula usually designates the father (who in this case was David), the translation specifies that David was Adonijah’s father.

sn Haggith was one of David’s wives (2 Sam 3:4; 2 Chr 3:2).

tn Heb “lifting himself up.”

tn Heb “saying.”

tn Or “he acquired for himself.”

tn Heb “to run ahead of him.”
