Parallel Verses
New American Standard Bible
"Wherever I have gone with all the sons of Israel, did I speak a word with one of the tribes of Israel, which I commanded to shepherd My people Israel, saying, 'Why have you not built Me a house of cedar?'"'

King James Bible
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?

Holman Christian Standard Bible
In all My journeys with all the Israelites, have I ever asked anyone among the tribes of Israel, whom I commanded to shepherd My people Israel: Why haven't you built Me a house of cedar?'"

Instead of (), {shivtey}, `tribes,' we should probably read, with Houbigant, Drs. Waterland and A. clarke, and others, (), {shophty}, `judges;' which is the reading in the parallel passages. 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 (), {pay}, being the only mark to distinguish if from the (), {baith}.
