Job 13:17

Context
NETBible

Listen carefully 1  to my words; let your ears be attentive to my explanation. 2 

XREF

Job 13:6; Job 33:1

NET © Notes

tn The infinitive absolute intensifies the imperative, which serves here with the force of an immediate call to attention. In accordance with GKC 342 §113.n, the construction could be translated, “Keep listening” (so ESV).

tn The verb has to be supplied in this line, for the MT has “and my explanation in your ears.” In the verse, both “word” and “explanation” are Aramaisms (the latter appearing in Dan 5:12 for the explanation of riddles).
