2 Samuel 4:7
4:7 They had entered8 the house while Ish-bosheth9 was resting on his bed in his bedroom. They mortally wounded him10 and then cut off his head.11 Taking his head,12 they traveled on the way of the Arabah all that night.
tn Heb “he”; the referent (Ish-bosheth) has been specified in the translation for clarity.
tn Heb “they struck him down and killed him.” The expression is a verbal hendiadys.
tc The Lucianic Greek recension lacks the words “his head.”
