Job 33:12-13

Context

33:12 Now in this, you are not right – I answer you, 1 

for God is greater than a human being. 2 

33:13 Why do you contend against him,

that he does not answer all a person’s 3  words?

1 tn The meaning of this verb is “this is my answer to you.”

2 tc The LXX has “he that is above men is eternal.” Elihu is saying that God is far above Job’s petty problems.

3 tc The MT has “all his words.” This must refer to “man” in the previous verse. But many wish to change it to “my words,” since it would be summarizing Job’s complaint to God.
