(18) As I have covenanted with.--Heb. k?ratti l?, "Icut (a covenant) for." The word b?rith, "covenant," is omitted, as in 2Chronicles 5:10. So LXX., ?? ???????? ????? ?? ????? ???. Syriac, "As I sware to David." Kings: "As I spake concerning David" (k?ratti may be an ancient misreading of dibbarti, "I spake;" the two being much alike in Heb. writing).

Ruler in Israel (mosh?l).--Kings, "From upon the throne of Israel." The chronicler has substituted a reminiscence of Micah 5:1, probably correcting a defective text, the word throne having fallen out. Syriac, "who standeth on the throne of Israel."
