Genesis 27:33-34

Context
27:33 Isaac began to shake violently 1  and asked, “Then who else hunted game and brought it to me? I ate all of it just before you arrived, and I blessed him. 2  He will indeed be blessed!”

27:34 When Esau heard 3  his father’s words, he wailed loudly and bitterly. 4  He said to his father, “Bless me too, my father!”

1 tn Heb “and Isaac trembled with a great trembling to excess.” The verb “trembled” is joined with a cognate accusative, which is modified by an adjective “great,” and a prepositional phrase “to excess.” All of this is emphatic, showing the violence of Isaac’s reaction to the news.

2 tn Heb “Who then is he who hunted game and brought [it] to me so that I ate from all before you arrived and blessed him?”

3 tn The temporal clause is introduced with the temporal indicator and has the infinitive as its verb.

4 tn Heb “and he yelled [with] a great and bitter yell to excess.”
