NET © Notes

tn The preterites describing their actions must be taken in an ingressive sense, since they did not actually complete the job. Shepherds drove them away, and Moses watered the flocks.

tn The object “water” is not in the Hebrew text, but is implied.

tn This also has the ingressive sense, “began to fill,” but for stylistic reasons is translated simply “fill” here.
