Job 17:13


17:13 If 1  I hope for the grave to be my home,

if I spread out my bed in darkness,

Job 30:23


30:23 I know that you are bringing 2  me to death,

to the meeting place for all the living.

1 tn The clause begins with אִם (’im) which here has more of the sense of “since.” E. Dhorme (Job, 253) takes a rather rare use of the word to get “Can I hope again” (see also GKC 475 §150.f for the caveat).

2 tn The imperfect verb would be a progressive imperfect, it is future, but it is also already underway.
