BBE ©

Who is this who makes dark the purpose of God by words without knowledge? For I have been talking without knowledge about wonders not to be searched out.

NET © Notes

tn The expression “you asked” is added here to clarify the presence of the line to follow. Many commentators delete it as a gloss from Job 38:2. If it is retained, then Job has to be recalling God’s question before he answers it.

tn The word לָכֵן (lakhen) is simply “but,” as in Job 31:37.

tn Heb “and I do not understand.” The expression serves here in an adverbial capacity. It also could be subordinated as a complement: “I have declared [things that] I do not understand.”

tn The last clause is “and I do not know.” This is also subordinated to become a dependent clause.
