Genesis 30:40-42

Context
30:40 Jacob removed these lambs, but he made the rest of the flock face 1  the streaked and completely dark-colored animals in Laban’s flock. So he made separate flocks for himself and did not mix them with Laban’s flocks. 30:41 When the stronger females were in heat, 2  Jacob would set up the branches in the troughs in front of the flock, so they would mate near the branches. 30:42 But if the animals were weaker, he did not set the branches there. 3  So the weaker animals ended up belonging to Laban 4  and the stronger animals to Jacob.

1 tn Heb “and he set the faces of.”

2 tn Heb “and at every breeding-heat of the flock.”

3 tn Heb “he did not put [them] in.” The referent of the [understood] direct object, “them,” has been specified as “the branches” in the translation for clarity.

4 tn Heb “were for Laban.”
