NET © Notes

tn Heb “came to the rich man.” In the translation “arrived at the rich man’s home” has been used for stylistic reasons.

tn Heb “and he refused to take from his flock and from his herd to prepare [a meal] for.”

tn Heb “who had come to him” (also a second time later in this verse). The word “visit” has been supplied in the translation for stylistic reasons and for clarity.

tn Heb “and prepared.”
