NET © Notes

tn Heb “in exchange for Rachel.”

sn But they seemed like only a few days to him. This need not mean that the time passed quickly. More likely it means that the price seemed insignificant when compared to what he was getting in the bargain.

tn Heb “because of his love for her.” The words “was so great” are supplied for stylistic reasons.
