NET © Notes

tn Heb “according to what [= how long] will you not look away from me.”

tn The verb שָׁעָה (shaah, “to look”) with the preposition מִן (min) means “to look away from; to avert one’s gaze.” Job wonders if God would not look away from him even briefly, for the constant vigilance is killing him.

tn The Hiphil of רָפָה (rafah) means “to leave someone alone.”
