NET © Notes

tn Heb “give my wives and my children, for whom I have served you.” In one sense Laban had already “given” Jacob his two daughters as wives (Gen 29:21, 28). Here Jacob was asking for permission to take his own family along with him on the journey back to Canaan.

tn Following the imperative, the cohortative with the prefixed conjunction indicates purpose or result.

tn Heb “for you, you know my service [with] which I have served you.”
