NLTNew Living Translation
7The son of Carmi (a descendant of Zimri) was Achan,# Hebrew Achar; compare Josh 7:1. Achar means “disaster.” who brought disaster on Israel by taking plunder that had been set apart for the lord.# The Hebrew term used here refers to the complete consecration of things or people to the Lord, either by destroying them or by giving them as an offering.
