Genesis 12:18-19

Context
12:18 So Pharaoh summoned Abram and said, “What is this 1  you have done to me? Why didn’t you tell me that she was your wife? 12:19 Why did you say, ‘She is my sister,’ so that I took her 2  to be my wife? 3  Here is your wife! 4  Take her and go!” 5 

1 tn The demonstrative pronoun translated “this” adds emphasis: “What in the world have you done to me?” (R. J. Williams, Hebrew Syntax, 24, §118).

2 tn The preterite with vav (ו) consecutive here expresses consequence.

3 tn Heb “to me for a wife.”

4 tn Heb “Look, your wife!”

5 tn Heb “take and go.”
