NET © Notes

tn Heb “a man to his neighbor.” The Hebrew idiom may be translated “to each other” or “one to another.”

tn The speech contains two cohortatives of exhortation followed by their respective cognate accusatives: “let us brick bricks” (נִלְבְּנָה לְבֵנִים, nilbbÿnah lÿvenim) and “burn for burning” (נִשְׂרְפָה לִשְׂרֵפָה, nisrÿfah lisrefah). This stresses the intensity of the undertaking; it also reflects the Akkadian text which uses similar constructions (see E. A. Speiser, Genesis [AB], 75-76).

tn Or “bitumen” (cf. NEB, NRSV).

tn The disjunctive clause gives information parenthetical to the narrative.
