New Defender's Study Bible Notes

29:35 I praise the LORD. The Lord in grace not only gave Leah (the “slighted” wife–not “hated,” as wrongly rendered in Genesis 29:31) more sons than Rachel, but one of these was Judah, who was destined to produce the kingly tribe–including David and, eventually, Christ. It is thus significant that this is the first occurrence of the word here translated “praise,” and more commonly rendered “give thanks.”
