Context

Exodus 13:5

Context

13:5 When 3  the Lord brings you to the land of the Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Hivites, and Jebusites, which he swore to your fathers to give you, a land flowing with milk and honey, 4  then you will keep 5  this ceremony 6  in this month.

Exodus 34:11

Context

34:11 “Obey 7  what I am commanding you this day. I am going to drive out 8  before you the Amorite, the Canaanite, the Hittite, the Perizzite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite.

1 tn Heb “And I said.”

2 tn See the note on this list in 3:8.

3 tn Heb “and it will be when.”

4 tn See notes on Exod 3:8.

5 tn The verb is וְעָבַדְתָּ (vÿavadta), the Qal perfect with a vav (ו) consecutive. It is the equivalent of the imperfect tense of instruction or injunction; it forms the main point after the temporal clause – “when Yahweh brings you out…then you will serve.”

6 tn The object is a cognate accusative for emphasis on the meaning of the service – “you will serve this service.” W. C. Kaiser notes how this noun was translated “slavery” and “work” in the book, but “service” or “ceremony” for Yahweh. Israel was saved from slavery to Egypt into service for God as remembered by this ceremony (“Exodus,” EBC 2:383).

7 tn The covenant duties begin with this command to “keep well” what is being commanded. The Hebrew expression is “keep for you”; the preposition and the suffix form the ethical dative, adding strength to the imperative.

8 tn Again, this is the futur instans use of the participle.
