Genesis 31:29

Context
31:29 I have 1  the power to do you harm, but the God of your father told me last night, ‘Be careful 2  that you neither bless nor curse Jacob.’ 3 

1 tn Heb “there is to my hand.”

2 tn Heb “watch yourself,” which is a warning to be on guard against doing something that is inappropriate.

3 tn Heb “from speaking with Jacob from good to evil.” The precise meaning of the expression, which occurs only here and in v. 24, is uncertain. See the note on the same phrase in v. 24.
