2 Kings 15:18
15:18 He did evil in the sight of23 the Lord; he did not repudiate24 the sinful ways of Jeroboam son of Nebat who encouraged Israel to sin.25
During his reign,
tn Heb “in the eyes of.”
tn Heb “turn away from.”
tc The MT of v. 18 ends with the words, “all his days.” If this phrase is taken with what precedes, then one should translate, “[who encouraged Israel to sin] throughout his reign.” However, it may be preferable to emend the text to בְיֹמָיו (béyomav), “in his days,” and join the phrase to what follows. The translation assumes this change.
