her soul = her life. Hebrew. nephesh (App-13), rendered "life" in Gen 1:20.

in departing = ebbing away, or failing (Gen 42:28. Son 5:6); or ending (Exo 23:16). In Eze 7:10 rendered "gone forth"; Exo 23:26. In Eze 26:18 rendered "departure".

Ben-oni = Son of my sorrow.

Benjamin = Son of my right hand. The word rendered "sorrow" ('avon) is a Homonym, the other meaning being "strength", and is so rendered in Gen 49:3. Deu 21:17. Job 18:7, Job 18:12 &c. It is rendered "mourning" in Deu 26:14. Hos 9:4. This Homonym is the basis of Jacobs change of Benjamin's name. The Authorized Version and Revised Version both recognize this Homonym.
