1 Chronicles 4:9-10

Context

4:9 Jabez was more respected than his brothers. His mother had named him Jabez, for she said, “I experienced pain when I gave birth to him.” 1  4:10 Jabez called out to the God of Israel, “If only 2  you would greatly bless me and expand my territory! May your hand be with me! Keep me from harm so I might not endure pain!” 3  God answered his prayer. 4 

1 tn In Hebrew the name יַעְבֵּץ (yabets, “Jabez”) sounds like the noun עֹצֶב (’otsev) which means “pain.”

2 tn On the use of אִם (’im, “if”) here, see HALOT 60 s.v.

3 tn Heb “and act from [i.e., so as to prevent] harm so that I might not be in pain.”

4 tn Heb “and God brought about what he had asked.”
