Genesis 50:11

Context
50:11 When the Canaanites who lived in the land saw them mourning at the threshing floor of Atad, they said, “This is a very sad occasion 1  for the Egyptians.” That is why its name was called 2  Abel Mizraim, 3  which is beyond the Jordan.

1 tn Heb “this is heavy mourning for Egypt.”

2 tn The verb has no expressed subject and so it may be translated as passive.

3 sn The name Abel Mizraim means “the mourning of Egypt.”
