Footnotes:

  1. Genesis 29:21 tn Heb “and Jacob said.”
  2. Genesis 29:21 tn Heb “my days are fulfilled.”
  3. Genesis 29:21 tn Heb “I want to approach.” The verb בּוֹא (boʾ) with the preposition אֶל (ʾel) means “come to” or “approach,” but is also used as a euphemism for sexual relations. The verb is a cohortative; it may be subordinated to the preceding request, “so that I may sleep with,” or it may be an independent clause expressing his desire.
