37:22 Reuben continued,50 “Don’t shed blood! Throw him into this cistern that is here in the wilderness, but don’t lay a hand on him.”51 (Reuben said this52 so he could rescue Joseph53 from them54 and take him back to his father.)
tn Heb “and Reuben said to them.”
sn The verbs translated shed, throw, and lay sound alike in Hebrew; the repetition of similar sounds draws attention to Reuben’s words.
tn The words “Reuben said this” are not in the Hebrew text, but have been supplied in the translation for stylistic reasons.
tn Heb “him”; the referent (Joseph) has been specified in the translation for clarity.
tn Heb “from their hands” (cf. v. 21). This expression has been translated as “them” here for stylistic reasons.
