Genesis 28:4

Context
28:4 May he give you and your descendants the blessing he gave to Abraham 1  so that you may possess the land 2  God gave to Abraham, the land where you have been living as a temporary resident.” 3 

1 tn Heb “and may he give to you the blessing of Abraham, to you and to your offspring with you.” The name “Abraham” is an objective genitive here; this refers to the blessing that God gave to Abraham.

2 tn The words “the land” have been supplied in the translation for clarity.

3 tn Heb “the land of your sojournings,” that is, the land where Jacob had been living as a resident alien, as his future descendants would after him.
