Joshua 22:23

NET © Notes

tn Heb “by building.” The prepositional phrase may be subordinated to what precedes, “if in unfaithfulness…by building.”

tn Heb “or if to offer up.”

tn Heb “or if to make.”

tn Or “peace offerings.”

tn Heb “the Lord, he will seek.” Perhaps this is a self-imprecation in an oath, “may the Lord himself punish us.”
