Numbers 5:22

Context
5:22 and this water that causes the curse will go 1  into your stomach, and make your abdomen swell and your thigh rot.” 2  Then the woman must say, “Amen, amen.” 3 

Numbers 5:27

Context
5:27 When he has made her drink the water, then, if she has defiled herself and behaved unfaithfully toward her husband, the water that brings a curse will enter her to produce bitterness – her abdomen will swell, her thigh will fall away, and the woman will become a curse among her people.

1 tn The verb is the perfect tense with vav (ו) consecutive. It could be taken as a jussive following the words of the priest in the previous section, but it is more likely to be a simple future.

2 tn Heb “fall away.”

3 tn The word “amen” carries the idea of “so be it,” or “truly.” The woman who submits to this test is willing to have the test demonstrate the examination of God.
