Job 39:27-30


39:27 Is it at your command 1  that the eagle soars,

and builds its nest on high?

39:28 It lives on a rock and spends the night there,

on a rocky crag 2  and a fortress. 3 

39:29 From there it spots 4  its prey, 5 

its eyes gaze intently from a distance.

39:30 And its young ones devour the blood,

and where the dead carcasses 6  are,

there it is.”

1 tn Heb “your mouth.”

2 tn Heb “upon the tooth of a rock.”

3 tn The word could be taken as the predicate, but because of the conjunction it seems to be adding another description of the place of its nest.

4 tn The word means “search,” but can be used for a wide range of matters, including spying.

5 tn Heb “food.”

6 tn The word חֲלָלִים (khalalim) designates someone who is fatally wounded, literally the “pierced one,” meaning anyone or thing that dies a violent death.
