Genesis 45:7


God sent me 1  ahead of you to preserve you 2  on the earth and to save your lives 3  by a great deliverance.

NET © Notes

sn God sent me. The repetition of this theme that God sent Joseph is reminiscent of commission narratives in which the leader could announce that God sent him (e.g., Exod 3:15).

tn Heb “to make you a remnant.” The verb, followed here by the preposition לְ (lÿ), means “to make.”

tn The infinitive gives a second purpose for God’s action.
