Genesis 26:7


When the men of that place asked him about his wife, he replied, “She is my sister.” 1  He was afraid to say, “She is my wife,” for he thought to himself, 2  “The men of this place will kill me to get 3  Rebekah because she is very beautiful.”

NET © Notes

sn Rebekah, unlike Sarah, was not actually her husband’s sister.

tn Heb “lest.” The words “for he thought to himself” are supplied because the next clause is written with a first person pronoun, showing that Isaac was saying or thinking this.

tn Heb “kill me on account of.”
