tn The MT reads “Tibhath” here, a variant name for Tebah (cf. 2 Sam 8:8). Some English translations substitute the other version of the name here (e.g., NIV, NLT), while others follow the reading of the Hebrew text at this point (e.g., NAB, NASB, NRSV).
tn The parallel text of 2 Sam 8:8 has the variant name “Berothai.”
tnHeb “the sea of bronze,” or “[the] sea, the bronze one.” See the note at 1 Kgs 7:23.
