Genesis 35:3

Context
35:3 Let us go up at once 1  to Bethel. Then I will make 2  an altar there to God, who responded to me in my time of distress 3  and has been with me wherever I went.” 4 

1 tn Heb “let us arise and let us go up.” The first cohortative gives the statement a sense of urgency.

2 tn The cohortative with the prefixed conjunction here indicates purpose or consequence.

3 tn Heb “day of distress.” See Ps 20:1 which utilizes similar language.

4 tn Heb “in the way in which I went.” Jacob alludes here to God’s promise to be with him (see Gen 28:20).
