2 Samuel 7:7  (King James Version)
In all the places wherein I have walked with all the children of Israel spake I a word with any of the tribes of Israel, whom I commanded to feed my people Israel, saying, Why build ye not me an house of cedar?
 


walked
Leviticus 26:11 Leviticus 26:12

any of the tribes
1 Chronicles 17:6

any of the judges
Instead of [shbty,] {shivtey,} "tribes," we should probably read, with Houbigant, Drs
Waterland and A. Clarke, and others, [shpty,] {shophtey,} "judges;" which is the reading in the parallel passage. Indeed there is but one letter of difference between them, and letters which might be easily mistaken for each other; the apex under the upper stroke of the [p,] {pay,} being the only mark to distinguish it from the [b,] {baith
} Compare with ver. 11.
