NET © Notes

tn Heb “in your youth”; or “in your childhood.”

tn Heb “walk in the ways of your heart.”

tn Heb “the sight.”

tn Heb “and know that concerning all these God will bring you into judgment.” The point is not that following one’s impulses and desires is inherently bad and will bring condemnation from God. Rather the point seems to be: As you follow your impulses and desires, realize that all you think and do will eventually be evaluated by God. So one must seek joy within the boundaries of God’s moral standards.
