NET © Notes

tn The construction uses a perfect verb followed by the imperfect. This is a form of subordination equivalent to a complementary infinitive (see GKC 385-86 §120.c).

tn The words “if I did” are supplied in the translation to make sense out of the two clauses.

tn Heb “quickly carry me away.”
