Text Commentary

1When I married I was twenty eight years old, and my wife's name was Melcha. 2And she conceived and bore a son, and she called him Gershom because we were living as foreigners in our land (for Gershom means 1 Lit. ‘is written’. ‘living as a foreigner’). 3And I saw in a vision about him that he would not be in the front rank. 4And Kohath was born in my thirty fifth year, towards sunrise. 5And I saw in a vision that he was standing raised above the rest of the 6congregation round about him (that is why I called him Kohath, which is ‘beginning of greatness’ and ‘reconciliation’ 2 Lit. ‘bringing together’. ). 7And as a third son she bore me Merari in my fortieth year; and it was a difficult birth (that is why his mother called him Merari, which is ‘my bitterness’ – and his life too was in danger). 8And Jochebed was born in my sixty fourth year, in Egypt; for by then I was much esteemed among my brothers.

Notes:

1 Lit. ‘is written’.

2 Lit. ‘bringing together’.
