XREF

Ge 43:11,16

NET © Notes

tn The construction uses the infinitive construct after the preposition, followed by the subjective genitive.

tn The action precedes the action of preparing the gift, and so must be translated as past perfect.

tn Heb “eat bread.” The imperfect verbal form is used here as a historic future (future from the perspective of the past).
