(Now his father had never corrected[a] him[b] by saying, “Why do you do such things?” He was also very handsome and had been born right after Absalom.[c])

Footnotes:

  1. 1 Kings 1:6 tn Or “disciplined.”
  2. 1 Kings 1:6 tn Heb “did not correct him from his days.” The phrase “from his days” means “from his earliest days,” or “ever in his life.” See GKC 382 §119.w, n. 2.
  3. 1 Kings 1:6 tn Heb “and she gave birth to him after Absalom.” This does not imply they had the same mother; Absalom’s mother was Maacah, not Haggith (2 Sam 3:4).
