Job 31:13-14

Context

31:13 “If I have disregarded the right of my male servants

or my female servants

when they disputed 1  with me,

31:14 then what will I do when God confronts me in judgment; 2 

when he intervenes, 3 

how will I respond to him?

1 tn This construction is an adverbial clause using the temporal preposition, the infinitive from רִיב (riv, “contend”), and the suffix which is the subjective genitive.

2 tn Heb “arises.” The LXX reads “takes vengeance,” an interpretation that is somewhat correct but unnecessary. The verb “to rise” would mean “to confront in judgment.”

3 tn The verb פָקַד (paqad) means “to visit,” but with God as the subject it means any divine intervention for blessing or cursing, anything God does that changes a person’s life. Here it is “visit to judge.”
