NET © Notes

tn R. Gordis (Job, 422) prefers to link this word with the later Hebrew word for “arch,” not “hands.”

tn Because the image might mean that God grabs the lightning and hurls it like a javelin (cf. NLT), some commentators want to change “covers” to other verbs. Dhorme has “lifts” (נִשָּׂא [nissa’] for כִּסָּה [kissah]). This fit the idea of God directing the lightning bolts.
