NET © Notes

tn Or “I am sending.” The form is a preterite with the vav consecutive; it could be rendered as an English present tense – as the Hebrew perfect/preterite allows – much like an epistolary aorist in Greek. The form assumes the temporal perspective of the one who reads the message.

tn The words “this message” are not in the Hebrew text, but have been supplied in the translation for stylistic reasons.
