2 Samuel 12:3
12:3 But the poor man had nothing except for a little lamb he had acquired. He raised it, and it grew up alongside him and his children.5 It used to6 eat his food,7 drink from his cup, and sleep in his arms.8 It was just like a daughter to him.
tn Heb “his sons.”
tn The three Hebrew imperfect verbal forms in this sentence have a customary nuance; they describe past actions that were repeated or typical.
tn Heb “from his morsel.”
tn Heb “and on his chest [or perhaps, “lap”] it would lay.”
