Genesis 29:34

Context

29:34 She became pregnant again and had another son. She said, “Now this time my husband will show me affection, 1  because I have given birth to three sons for him.” That is why he was named Levi. 2 

1 tn Heb “will be joined to me.”

2 sn The name Levi (לֵוִי, levi), the precise meaning of which is debated, was appropriate because it sounds like the verb לָוָה (lavah, “to join”), used in the statement recorded earlier in the verse.
