NET © Notes

tn The words “bring out” are not in the Hebrew text, but are supplied in the translation for stylistic reasons.

tn Following the Hiphil imperative, “bring out,” the three perfect verb forms with vav (ו) consecutive carry an imperatival nuance. For a discussion of the Hebrew construction here and the difficulty of translating it into English, see S. R. Driver, A Treatise on the Use of the Tenses in Hebrew, 124-25.

tn Heb “and let them swarm in the earth and be fruitful and multiply on the earth.”
