2 Chronicles 12:11-13 New English Translation (NET Bible)

11 Whenever the king visited the Lord’s temple, the royal guards carried them and then brought them back to the guardroom.[a]

12 So when Rehoboam[b] humbled himself, the Lord relented from his anger and did not annihilate him;[c] Judah experienced some good things.[d] 13 King Rehoboam solidified his rule in Jerusalem;[e] he[f] was forty-one years old when he became king, and he ruled for seventeen years in Jerusalem, the city the Lord chose from all the tribes of Israel to be his home.[g] Rehoboam’s[h] mother was an Ammonite named Naamah.

Footnotes:

  1. 2 Chronicles 12:11 tn Heb “to the chamber of the runners.”
  2. 2 Chronicles 12:12 tn Heb “he”; the referent (Rehoboam) has been specified in the translation for clarity.
  3. 2 Chronicles 12:12 tn Heb “the anger of the Lord turned from him and did not destroy completely.”
  4. 2 Chronicles 12:12 tn Heb “and also in Judah there were good things.”
  5. 2 Chronicles 12:13 tn Heb “and the king, Rehoboam, strengthened himself in Jerusalem and ruled.”
  6. 2 Chronicles 12:13 tn Heb “Rehoboam.” The recurrence of the proper name here is redundant in terms of contemporary English style, so the pronoun has been used in the translation instead.
  7. 2 Chronicles 12:13 tn Heb “the city where the Lord chose to place his name from all the tribes of Israel.”
  8. 2 Chronicles 12:13 tn Heb “his”; the referent has been specified in the translation for clarity.
