Genesis 34:15-16

34:15 We will give you our consent on this one condition: You must become 1  like us by circumcising 2  all your males. 34:16 Then we will give 3  you our daughters to marry, 4  and we will take your daughters as wives for ourselves, and we will live among you and become one people.

1 tn Heb “if you are like us.”

2 tn The infinitive here explains how they would become like them.

3 tn The perfect verbal form with the vav (ו) consecutive introduces the apodosis of the conditional sentence.

4 tn The words “to marry” (and the words “as wives” in the following clause) are not in the Hebrew text, but are supplied in the translation for clarity.
