NET © Notes

tn Heb “and buy for us from there.” The word “grain,” the direct object of “buy,” has been supplied for clarity, and the words “from there” have been omitted in the translation for stylistic reasons.

tn Following the imperatives, the prefixed verbal form with prefixed vav expresses purpose of result.

tn The imperfect tense continues the nuance of the verb before it.
