For my husband is not home;
he has gone on a long journey. Bible other translations

my husband.” The woman will not be able to hide the fact she is married when she gets the young man into her house, so she comes right out and addresses the subject in a way designed to allay any concerns he may have.

“home.” The Hebrew is literally, “at his house,” but translating it that way might confuse the reader as to whether her husband had another house.
