NET © Notes

tn The imperative has the force of a prayer here, not a command.

tn The “hand” here is a metonymy for “power.”

tn Heb “from the hand of my brother, from the hand of Esau.”

tn Heb “for I am afraid of him, lest he come.”

sn Heb “me, [the] mother upon [the] sons.” The first person pronoun “me” probably means here “me and mine,” as the following clause suggests.
