NET © Notes

tn The Hebrew verb translated “quarreled” describes a conflict that often has legal ramifications.

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

tn Heb “and he called the name of the well.”

sn The name Esek means “argument” in Hebrew. The following causal clause explains that Isaac gave the well this name as a reminder of the conflict its discovery had created. In the Hebrew text there is a wordplay, for the name is derived from the verb translated “argued.”

tn The words “about it” are supplied in the translation for stylistic reasons.
