Genesis 37:35

Context
37:35 All his sons and daughters stood by 1  him to console him, but he refused to be consoled. “No,” he said, “I will go to the grave mourning my son.” 2  So Joseph’s 3  father wept for him.

1 tn Heb “arose, stood”; which here suggests that they stood by him in his time of grief.

2 tn Heb “and he said, ‘Indeed I will go down to my son mourning to Sheol.’” Sheol was viewed as the place where departed spirits went after death.

3 tn Heb “his”; the referent (Joseph) has been specified in the translation for clarity.
