Then Laban said to Jacob, “Should you work 1  for me for nothing because you are my relative? 2  Tell me what your wages should be.”

NET © Notes

tn The verb is the perfect with the vav (ו) consecutive; the nuance in the question is deliberative.

tn Heb “my brother.” The term “brother” is used in a loose sense; actually Jacob was Laban’s nephew.
