Genesis 20:6

Context

20:6 Then in the dream God replied to him, “Yes, I know that you have done this with a clear conscience. 4  That is why I have kept you 5  from sinning against me and why 6  I did not allow you to touch her.

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 Heb “with the integrity of your heart.”

5 tn Heb “and I, even I, kept you.”

6 tn Heb “therefore.”
