NET © Notes

tn The word “human” does not appear in the Hebrew text, but is supplied in the translation for stylistic reasons.

tn Heb “is far away.”

tn Heb “It is deep, deep – who can find it?” The repetition of the word “deep” emphasizes the degree of incomprehensibility. See IBHS 233-34 §12.5a.
