Genesis 42:23

Context
42:23 (Now 1  they did not know that Joseph could understand them, 2  for he was speaking through an interpreter.) 3 

1 tn The disjunctive clause provides supplemental information that is important to the story.

2 tn “was listening.” The brothers were not aware that Joseph could understand them as they spoke the preceding words in their native language.

3 tn Heb “for [there was] an interpreter between them.” On the meaning of the word here translated “interpreter” see HALOT 590 s.v. מֵלִיץ and M. A. Canney, “The Hebrew melis (Prov IX 12; Gen XLII 2-3),” AJSL 40 (1923/24): 135-37.
