NET © Notes

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

tn The Hebrew text adds “from him.” This has not been translated for stylistic reasons, because it is redundant in English.

tn The Hebrew verb קָלָל (qalal) normally means “to be light, to be slight”; it refers here to the waters receding.
