but you are to open, yes, open your hand to him and are to lend, yes, lend him sufficient for his need that he lacks. Bible other translations

“open, yes, open...lend, yes, lend.” The Hebrew text emphasizes the fact that the richer person must be willing to lend to the poorer person by using the figure of speech polyptoton, where the same verb is repeated but in two different tenses (see commentary on Gen. 2:16).
