Genesis 20:1

Context
Abraham and Abimelech

20:1 Abraham journeyed from there to the Negev 4  region and settled between Kadesh and Shur. While he lived as a temporary resident 5  in Gerar,

1 tn Heb “came.”

2 tn Heb “Look, you [are] dead.” The Hebrew construction uses the particle הִנֵּה (hinneh) with a second person pronominal particle הִנֵּה (hinneh) with by the participle. It is a highly rhetorical expression.

3 tn Heb “and she is owned by an owner.” The disjunctive clause is causal or explanatory in this case.

4 tn Or “the South [country]”; Heb “the land of the Negev.”

sn Negev is the name for the southern desert region in the land of Canaan.

5 tn Heb “and he sojourned.”
