Genesis 50:11

50:11 When the Canaanites who lived in the land saw them mourning at the threshing floor of Atad, they said, “This is a very sad occasion for the Egyptians.” That is why its name was called Abel Mizraim, which is beyond the Jordan.

tn Heb “this is heavy mourning for Egypt.”

tn The verb has no expressed subject and so it may be translated as passive.

sn The name Abel Mizraim means “the mourning of Egypt.”
