Job 38:16-18

Context

38:16 Have you gone to the springs that fill the sea, 1 

or walked about in the recesses of the deep?

38:17 Have the gates of death been revealed to you? 2 

Have you seen the gates of deepest darkness? 3 

38:18 Have you considered the vast expanses of the earth?

Tell me, if you know it all!

1 tn Heb “the springs of the sea.” The words “that fill” are supplied in the translation to clarify the meaning of the phrase.

2 tn Heb “uncovered to you.”

3 tn Some still retain the traditional phrase “shadow of death” in the English translation (cf. NIV). The reference is to the entrance to Sheol (see Job 10:21).
