NET © Notes

tn Heb “he”; the referent (Jacob) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

sn The expression he alone is left meant that (so far as Jacob knew) Benjamin was the only surviving child of his mother Rachel.

sn The expression bring down my gray hair is figurative, using a part for the whole – they would put Jacob in the grave. But the gray head signifies a long life of worry and trouble.

tn Heb “to Sheol,” the dwelling place of the dead.
