And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD. Genesis 4:1
Lekoneh means “to get as result of a relationship of love” or “to conceive.” Eve says, Qanithi, “I have gotten a man from the Lord” (Genesis 4:1) when she gave birth to her first son.
Later on, the word became used for “buying.” The Jews did not intend commerce to be a cold, selfish transaction, but rather a relationship in which, governed by love, two parties exchange needed items.
Let Christian merchants profit by this teaching.
