NET © Notes

tn Or “tore down.”

tn Or “images.”

tn The Hebrew construction translated “smashed…to bits” is emphatic. The adverbial infinitive absolute (הֵיטֵב [hetev], “well”) accompanying the Piel form of the verb שָׁבַר (shavar), “break,” suggests thorough demolition.

tn Heb “the priest.” Jehoiada’s name is added for clarification.
