18:4 Let a little water be brought so that 1 you may all 2 wash your feet and rest under the tree.
18:8 Abraham 3 then took some curds and milk, along with the calf that had been prepared, and placed the food 4 before them. They ate while 5 he was standing near them under a tree.
1 tn The imperative after the jussive indicates purpose here.
2 tn The word “all” has been supplied in the translation because the Hebrew verb translated “wash” and the pronominal suffix on the word “feet” are plural, referring to all three of the visitors.
3 tn Heb “he”; the referent (Abraham) has been specified in the translation for clarity.
4 tn The words “the food” are supplied in the translation for stylistic reasons. In the Hebrew text the verb has no stated object.
5 tn The disjunctive clause is a temporal circumstantial clause subordinate to the main verb.
