NET © Notes

tn Heb “the Lord.” See note on “he” in 10:4.

tn Heb “take delight to love.” Here again the verb אָהַב (’ahav, “love”), juxtaposed with בָחַר (bakhar, “choose”), is a term in covenant contexts that describes the Lord’s initiative in calling the patriarchal ancestors to be the founders of a people special to him (cf. the note on the word “loved” in Deut 4:37).

tn The Hebrew text includes “after them,” but it is redundant in English style and has not been included in the translation.
