Genesis 43:8

Context

43:8 Then Judah said to his father Israel, “Send the boy with me and we will go immediately. 1  Then we will live 2  and not die – we and you and our little ones.

1 tn Heb “and we will rise up and we will go.” The first verb is adverbial and gives the expression the sense of “we will go immediately.”

2 tn After the preceding cohortatives, the prefixed verbal form (either imperfect or cohortative) with the prefixed conjunction here indicates purpose or result.
