Job 28:7


a hidden path 1  no bird of prey knows – no falcon’s 2  eye has spotted it.


Job 11:6; Job 28:21-23; Job 38:19,24; Ro 11:33

NET © Notes

tn The “path” could refer to the mine shaft or it could refer to wisdom. The former seems more likely in the present context; the word “hidden is supplied in the translation to indicate the mines are “hidden” from sharp-eyed birds of prey above.

sn The kind of bird mentioned here is debated. The LXX has “vulture,” and so some commentaries follow that. The emphasis on the sight favors the view that it is the falcon.
