NET © Notes

tn Grk “he”; the referent (God) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

tn Grk “him”; the referent (Abraham) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

sn God gave…the covenant. Note how the covenant of promise came before Abraham’s entry into the land and before the building of the temple.

tn Grk “circumcised him on the eighth day,” but many modern readers will not understand that this procedure was done on the eighth day after birth. The temporal clause “when he was eight days old” conveys this idea more clearly. See Gen 17:11-12.

tn The words “became the father of” are not in the Greek text due to an ellipsis, but must be supplied for the English translation. The ellipsis picks up the verb from the previous clause describing how Abraham fathered Isaac.

sn The twelve patriarchs refers to the twelve sons of Jacob, the famous ancestors of the Jewish race (see Gen 35:23-26).
