Jer 38:10

Hey All,

I have a question about the text of Jer 38:10. The MT says the king told
Ebed-melech to take $L$M )N$M in his hand. The note in BHS reads ³1 c Ms
$L$H.² Most translations translate it as three men, except NASB, which is
always very literal. The Hermeneia commentary says, ³One would expect the
singular )W with Œthirty.¹²

How do I make an informed decision on the best way to translate this?

"Storytelling reveals meaning without
committing the error of defining it.²
