I cannot understand the meaning of the word reproved in the following verse of the King James Bible:
And unto Sarah he said, Behold, I have given thy brother a thousand pieces of silver: behold, he is to thee a covering of the eyes, unto all that are with thee, and with all other: thus she was reproved. - Gen. 20:16 AV
I looked to reprove up in dictionaries and found that this verb has negative connotations, meaning to condemn, to scold, to censure, etc.
Not sure about the meaning of the verse, I referred to another translation - English Standard Version - and it seems to have an apparently opposite meaning:
To Sarah he said, "Behold, I have given your brother a thousand pieces of silver. It is a sign of your innocence in the eyes of all who are with you, and before everyone you are vindicated." - Gen. 20:16 ESV
According to this Sarah was vindicated, i.e. exonerated or absolved.
I wonder how these two translations of the same passage can be interchangeable. For what Sarah could be reproved and for what she could be vindicated?
I've read this thread, but it doesn't seem to provide a definite answer for this particular question and I hope some new opinions may emerge.
