Exodus 18:8-9

Context
18:8 Moses told his father-in-law all that the Lord had done to Pharaoh and to Egypt for Israel’s sake, and all the hardship 1  that had come on them 2  along the way, and how 3  the Lord had delivered them.

18:9 Jethro rejoiced 4  because of all the good that the Lord had done for Israel, whom he had delivered from the hand of Egypt.

1 tn A rare word, “weariness” of the hardships.

2 tn Heb “found them.”

3 tn Here “how” has been supplied.

4 tn The word חָדָה (khada) is rare, occurring only in Job 3:6 and Ps 21:6, although it is common in Aramaic. The LXX translated it “he shuddered.” U. Cassuto suggests that that rendering was based on the midrashic interpretation in b. Sanhedrin 94b, “he felt cuts in his body” – a wordplay on the verb (Exodus, 215-16).
