Job 33:10-11

33:10 Yet God finds occasions with me;

he regards me as his enemy!

33:11 He puts my feet in shackles;

he watches closely all my paths.’

sn See Job 10:13ff.; 19:6ff.; and 13:24.

tn Heb “he”; the referent (God) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

tn The Hebrew means “frustrations” or “oppositions.” The RSV has “displeasure,” NIV “faults,” and NRSV “occasions.” Rashi chose the word found in Judg 14:4 – with metathesis – meaning “pretexts” (תֹּאֲנוֹת, toanot); this is followed by NAB, NASB.

sn See Job 13:27.
