Exodus 4:27-30

Context

4:27 The Lord said 1  to Aaron, “Go to the wilderness to meet Moses. So he went and met him at the mountain of God 2  and greeted him with a kiss. 3  4:28 Moses told Aaron all the words of the Lord who had 4  sent him and all the signs that he had commanded him. 4:29 Then Moses and Aaron went and brought together all the Israelite elders. 5  4:30 Aaron spoke 6  all the words that the Lord had spoken to Moses and did the signs in the sight of the people,

1 tn Heb “And Yahweh said.”

2 tn S. R. Driver considers that this verse is a continuation of vv. 17 and 18 and that Aaron met Moses before Moses started back to Egypt (Exodus, 33). The first verb, then, might have the nuance of a past perfect: Yahweh had said.

3 tn Heb “and kissed him.”

4 tn This verb and the last one in the verse are rendered with the past perfect nuance because they refer to what the Lord had done prior to Moses’ telling Aaron.

5 sn These are the leaders of the tribes who represented all the people. Later, after the exodus, Moses will select the most capable of them and others to be rulers in a judicial sense (Exod 18:21).

6 tn Heb “And Aaron spoke.”
