Genesis 23:8

Context
23:8 Then he said to them, “If you agree 1  that I may bury my dead, 2  then hear me out. 3  Ask 4  Ephron the son of Zohar

1 tn Heb “If it is with your purpose.” The Hebrew noun נֶפֶשׁ (nefesh) here has the nuance “purpose” or perhaps “desire” (see BDB 661 s.v. נֶפֶשׁ).

2 tn Heb “bury my dead out of my sight.” The last phrase “out of my sight” has not been included in the translation for stylistic reasons.

3 tn Or “hear me.”

4 tn Heb “intercede for me with.”
