24:7 They spend the night naked because they lack clothing;
they have no covering against the cold.
for I opened my doors to the traveler 2 –
39:9 Is the wild ox willing to be your servant?
Will it spend the night at your feeding trough?
1 tn This verse forms another parenthesis. Job stops almost at every point now in the conditional clauses to affirm his purity and integrity.
2 tn The word in the MT, אֹרחַ (’orakh, “way”), is a contraction from אֹרֵחַ (’oreakh, “wayfarer”); thus, “traveler.” The same parallelism is found in Jer 14:8. The reading here “on/to the road” is meaningless otherwise.
