Genesis 23:13

23:13 and said to Ephron in their hearing, “Hear me, if you will. I pay 1  to you the price 2  of the field. Take it from me so that I may 3  bury my dead there.”

Genesis 23:17


23:17 So Abraham secured 4  Ephron’s field in Machpelah, next to Mamre, including the field, the cave that was in it, and all the trees that were in the field and all around its border,

Genesis 41:8


41:8 In the morning he 5  was troubled, so he called for 6  all the diviner-priests 7  of Egypt and all its wise men. Pharaoh told them his dreams, 8  but no one could interpret 9  them for him. 10 

1 tn Heb “give.”

2 tn Heb “silver.”

3 tn After the imperative, the cohortative with the prefixed conjunction expresses purpose or result.

4 tn Heb “And it was conveyed.” The recipient, Abraham (mentioned in the Hebrew text at the beginning of v. 18) has been placed here in the translation for stylistic reasons.

5 tn Heb “his spirit.”

6 tn Heb “he sent and called,” which indicates an official summons.

7 tn The Hebrew term חַרְטֹם (khartom) is an Egyptian loanword (hyr-tp) that describes a class of priests who were skilled in such interpretations.

8 tn The Hebrew text has the singular (though the Samaritan Pentateuch reads the plural). If retained, the singular must be collective for the set of dreams. Note the plural pronoun “them,” referring to the dreams, in the next clause. However, note that in v. 15 Pharaoh uses the singular to refer to the two dreams. In vv. 17-24 Pharaoh seems to treat the dreams as two parts of one dream (see especially v. 22).

9 tn “there was no interpreter.”

10 tn Heb “for Pharaoh.” The pronoun “him” has been used in the translation for stylistic reasons.
