NET © Notes

tn The Hebrew term translated “Lord” here is אֲדֹנָי (’adonay).

tn Apparently Abimelech assumes that God’s judgment will fall on his entire nation. Some, finding the reference to a nation problematic, prefer to emend the text and read, “Would you really kill someone who is innocent?” See E. A. Speiser, Genesis (AB), 149.
