NET © Notes

sn The idiom used here is “Will you lift up his face?” Here Job is being very sarcastic, for this expression usually means that a judge is taking a bribe. Job is accusing them of taking God’s side.

tn The same root is used here (רִיב, riv, “dispute, contention”) as in v. 6b (see note).
