NET © Notes

tn The words “so as to give them some assurance of safety” are not in the text but are generally understood by all commentators. This would be a case of substitution of cause for effect, the oath, put for the effect, the assurance of safety (NJPS translates directly “reassured them”).

tn Heb “Chaldeans.” See the study note on 21:4 for explanation.
