Leah said, “How fortunate!” 1  So she named him Gad. 2 


Ge 35:26; Ge 46:16; Ge 49:19; De 33:20,21; Isa 65:11

NET © Notes

tc The statement in the Kethib (consonantal text) appears to mean literally “with good fortune,” if one takes the initial בְּ (bet) as a preposition indicating accompaniment. The Qere (marginal reading) means “good fortune has arrived.”

sn The name Gad (גָּד, gad) means “good fortune.” The name reflects Leah’s feeling that good fortune has come her way, as expressed in her statement recorded earlier in the verse.
