Genesis 18:13

Context

18:13 The Lord said to Abraham, “Why 1  did Sarah laugh and say, ‘Will I really 2  have a child when I am old?’

1 tn Heb “Why, this?” The demonstrative pronoun following the interrogative pronoun is enclitic, emphasizing the Lord’s amazement: “Why on earth did Sarah laugh?”

2 tn The Hebrew construction uses both הַאַף (haaf) and אֻמְנָם (’umnam): “Indeed, truly, will I have a child?”
