Exodus 6:29-30

Context
6:29 he said to him, 1  “I am the Lord. Tell 2  Pharaoh king of Egypt all that 3  I am telling 4  you.” 6:30 But Moses said before the Lord, “Since I speak with difficulty, 5  why should Pharaoh listen to me?”

1 tn Heb “and Yahweh spoke to Moses saying.” This has been simplified in the translation as “he said to him” for stylistic reasons.

2 tn The verb is דַּבֵּר (dabber), the Piel imperative. It would normally be translated “speak,” but in English that verb does not sound as natural with a direct object as “tell.”

3 tn The clause begins with אֵת כָּל־אֲשֶׁר (’et kol-asher) indicating that this is a noun clause functioning as the direct object of the imperative and providing the content of the commanded speech.

4 tn דֹּבֵר (dover) is the Qal active participle; it functions here as the predicate in the noun clause: “that I [am] telling you.” This one could be rendered, “that I am speaking to you.”

5 tn See note on Exod 6:12.
