Genesis 34:10

Context
34:10 You may live 1  among us, and the land will be open to you. 2  Live in it, travel freely in it, 3  and acquire property in it.”

Genesis 34:21

Context
34:21 “These men are at peace with us. So let them live in the land and travel freely in it, for the land is wide enough 4  for them. We will take their daughters for wives, and we will give them our daughters to marry. 5 

1 tn The imperfect verbal form has a permissive nuance here.

2 tn Heb “before you.”

3 tn The verb seems to carry the basic meaning “travel about freely,” although the substantival participial form refers to a trader (see E. A. Speiser, “The Verb sh£r in Genesis and Early Hebrew Movements,” BASOR 164 [1961]: 23-28); cf. NIV, NRSV “trade in it.”

4 tn Heb “wide on both hands,” that is, in both directions.

5 tn The words “to marry” are not in the Hebrew text, but are supplied in the translation for clarity.
