2 Samuel 12:6
12:6 Because he committed this cold-hearted crime, he must pay for the lamb four times over!”14
tc With the exception of the Lucianic recension, the Old Greek translation has here “sevenfold” rather than “fourfold,” a reading that S. R. Driver thought probably to be the original reading (S. R. Driver, Notes on the Hebrew Text and the Topography of the Books of Samuel, 291). However, Exod 22:1 [21:37 HT] specifies fourfold repayment for a stolen sheep, which is consistent with 2 Sam 12:6. Some mss of the Targum and the Syriac Peshitta exaggerate the idea to “fortyfold.”
tn Heb “the lamb he must repay fourfold because he did this thing and because he did not have compassion.”
