Job 36:27-28

Context

36:27 He draws up drops of water;

they distill 1  the rain into its mist, 2 

36:28 which the clouds pour down

and shower on humankind abundantly.

1 tn The verb means “to filter; to refine,” and so a plural subject with the drops of water as the subject will not work. So many read the singular, “he distills.”

2 tn This word עֵד (’ed) occurs also in Gen 2:6. The suggestion has been that instead of a mist it represents an underground watercourse that wells up to water the ground.
