Job 31:18

Context
NETBible

but from my youth I raised the orphan 1  like a father, and from my mother’s womb 2  I guided the widow! 3 

XREF

NET © Notes

tn Heb “he grew up with me.” Several commentators have decided to change the pronoun to “I,” and make it causative.

tn The expression “from my mother’s womb” is obviously hyperbolic. It is a way of saying “all his life.”

tn Heb “I guided her,” referring to the widow mentioned in v. 16.
