Genesis 47:4

Context
47:4 Then they said to Pharaoh, “We have come to live as temporary residents 1  in the land. There 2  is no pasture for your servants’ flocks because the famine is severe in the land of Canaan. So now, please let your servants live in the land of Goshen.”

1 tn Heb “to sojourn.”

2 tn Heb “for there.” The Hebrew uses a causal particle to connect what follows with what precedes. The translation divides the statement into two sentences for stylistic reasons.
