Job 33:29-33

Context
Elihu’s Appeal to Job 1 

33:29 “Indeed, God does all these things,

twice, three times, in his dealings 2  with a person,

33:30 to turn back his life from the place of corruption,

that he may be enlightened with the light of life.

33:31 Pay attention, Job – listen to me;

be silent, and I will speak.

33:32 If you have any words, 3  reply to me;

speak, for I want to justify you. 4 

33:33 If not, you listen to me;

be silent, and I will teach you wisdom.”

1 sn Elihu will repeat these instructions for Job to listen, over and over in painful repetition. See note on the heading to 32:1.

2 tn The phrase “in his dealings” is not in the Hebrew text, but has been supplied in the translation for clarification.

3 tn Heb “if there are words.”

4 tn The infinitive construct serves as the complement or object of “I desire.” It could be rendered “to justify you” or “your justification, “namely, “that you be justified.”
