Genesis 30:13

Context
30:13 Leah said, “How happy I am, 1  for women 2  will call me happy!” So she named him Asher. 3 

1 tn The Hebrew statement apparently means “with my happiness.”

2 tn Heb “daughters.”

3 sn The name Asher (אָשֶׁר, ’asher) apparently means “happy one.” The name plays on the words used in the statement which appears earlier in the verse. Both the Hebrew noun and verb translated “happy” and “call me happy,” respectively, are derived from the same root as the name Asher.
