Genesis 31:42

Context
31:42 If the God of my father – the God of Abraham, the one whom Isaac fears 1  – had not been with me, you would certainly have sent me away empty-handed! But God saw how I was oppressed and how hard I worked, 2  and he rebuked you last night.”

1 tn Heb “the fear of Isaac,” that is, the one whom Isaac feared and respected. For further discussion of this title see M. Malul, “More on pahad yitschaq (Gen. 31:42,53) and the Oath by the Thigh,” VT 35 (1985): 192-200.

2 tn Heb “My oppression and the work of my hands God saw.”
