Exodus 12:19

Context
12:19 For seven days 1  yeast must not be found in your houses, for whoever eats what is made with yeast – that person 2  will be cut off from the community of Israel, whether a foreigner 3  or one born in the land.

1 tn “Seven days” is an adverbial accusative of time (see R. J. Williams, Hebrew Syntax, 12, §56).

2 tn The term is נֶפֶשׁ (nefesh), often translated “soul.” It refers to the whole person, the soul within the body. The noun is feminine, agreeing with the feminine verb “be cut off.”

3 tn Or “alien”; or “stranger.”
