2 Samuel 7:7 New English Translation (NET Bible)

Wherever I moved among all the Israelites, I did not say[a] to any of their leaders[b] whom I appointed to care for[c] my people Israel, “Why have you not built me a house made from cedar?”’


  1. 2 Samuel 7:7 tn Heb “Did I speak a word?” In the Hebrew text the statement is phrased as a rhetorical question.
  2. 2 Samuel 7:7 tn Heb “tribes of Israel” (so KJV, NASB, NCV), but the parallel passage in 1 Chr 17:6 has “judges of Israel.”
  3. 2 Samuel 7:7 tn Heb “whom I commanded to shepherd” (so NIV, NRSV).
