Numbers 32:5

Context
32:5 So they said, “If we have found favor in your sight, 1  let this land be given to your servants for our inheritance. Do not have us cross 2  the Jordan River.” 3 

1 tn Heb “eyes.”

2 tn The verb is the Hiphil jussive from עָבַר (’avar, “to cross over”). The idea of “cause to cross” or “make us cross” might be too harsh, but “take across” with the rest of the nation is what they are trying to avoid.

3 tn The word “River” is not in the Hebrew text, but has been supplied in the translation for clarity.
