Genesis 35:4

Context

35:4 So they gave Jacob all the foreign gods that were in their possession 1  and the rings that were in their ears. 2  Jacob buried them 3  under the oak 4  near Shechem

1 tn Heb “in their hand.”

2 sn On the basis of a comparison with Gen 34 and Num 31, G. J. Wenham argues that the foreign gods and the rings could have been part of the plunder that came from the destruction of Shechem (Genesis [WBC], 2:324).

3 sn Jacob buried them. On the burial of the gods, see E. Nielson, “The Burial of the Foreign Gods,” ST 8 (1954/55): 102-22.

4 tn Or “terebinth.”
