NET © Notes

tn The form of the suffix on this verbal form indicates that the verb is a preterite, not an imperfect. As such it simply states the action factually. Note as well the preterites with vav (ו) consecutive that follow in the verse.

tn Heb “he made him suck honey from the rock.”

tn Heb “oil,” but this probably refers to olive oil; see note on the word “rock” at the end of this verse.

tn Heb “flinty.”

sn Olive oil from rock probably suggests olive trees growing on rocky ledges and yet doing so productively. See E. H. Merrill, Deuteronomy (NAC), 415; cf. TEV “their olive trees flourished in stony ground.”
