Description

The Lucianic text of 2 Kgs 13,22 includes a statement absent elsewhere : "and Hazael took the 'allophulon' from his hand, from the sea towards the evening to Aphek". Commentators generally understand that Hazael conquered a Philistine territory between the Mediterranean Sea and Aphek in the coastal plain. Paying attention to the translation practices of LXXL leads us to another solution: the territory lies in Transjordan between the Dead Sea and Aphek in the Golan. Thus this verse may be compared to another description of Hazael’s invasion, 2 Kgs 10,32-33.
