NET © Notes

tn Heb “it never saw the sun.”

tn The word “anything” does not appear in the Hebrew text, but is supplied in the translation for clarity.

sn The Hebrew term translated rest here refers to freedom from toil, anxiety, and misery – part of the miserable misfortune that the miserly man of wealth must endure.
