Then the king of Assyria commanded, saying, “Send back there one of the priests whom you exiled from there, and let him go and live there, and have him teach them the law of the god of the land.” Bible other translations

“and let him go.” Although the Masoretic Hebrew text has “them,” the Septuagint, Vulgate, and Syriac text read “him,” and in most of the rest of the verse and in 2 Kings 17:28 the priest is a singular person, but there are plural verbs (cp. “let go” and “live” there).
