1 Kings 5:9
5:9 My servants will bring the timber down from Lebanon to the sea. I will send it by sea in raft-like bundles to the place you designate.12 There I will separate the logs13 and you can carry them away. In exchange you will supply the food I need for my royal court.”14
tn Heb “I will place them [on? as?] rafts in the sea to the place where you designate to me.” This may mean he would send them by raft, or that he would tie them in raft-like bundles, and have ships tow them down to an Israelite port.
tn Heb “smash them,” i.e., untie the bundles.
tn Heb “as for you, you will satisfy my desire by giving food for my house.”
