Job 20:8-9

Context

20:8 Like a dream he flies away, never again to be found, 1 

and like a vision of the night he is put to flight.

20:9 People 2  who had seen him will not see him again,

and the place where he was

will recognize him no longer.

1 tn Heb “and they do not find him.” The verb has no expressed subject, and so here is equivalent to a passive. The clause itself is taken adverbially in the sentence.

2 tn Heb “the eye that had seen him.” Here a part of the person (the eye, the instrument of vision) is put by metonymy for the entire person.
