NET © Notes

tn Or “terebinth.”

sn The Hebrew word Moreh (מוֹרֶה, moreh) means “teacher.” It may well be that the place of this great oak tree was a Canaanite shrine where instruction took place.

tn Heb “as far as the place of Shechem, as far as the oak of Moreh.”

tn The disjunctive clause gives important information parenthetical in nature – the promised land was occupied by Canaanites.
