Job 38:25-28

Context

38:25 Who carves out a channel for the heavy rains,

and a path for the rumble of thunder,

38:26 to cause it to rain on an uninhabited land, 1 

a desert where there are no human beings, 2 

38:27 to satisfy a devastated and desolate land,

and to cause it to sprout with vegetation? 3 

38:28 Does the rain have a father,

or who has fathered the drops of the dew?

Job 38:34

Context

38:34 Can you raise your voice to the clouds

so that a flood of water covers you? 4 

1 tn Heb “on a land, no man.”

2 tn Heb “a desert, no man in it.”

3 tn Heb “to cause to sprout a source of vegetation.” The word מֹצָא (motsa’) is rendered “mine” in Job 28:1. The suggestion with the least changes is Wright’s: צָמֵא (tsame’, “thirsty”). But others choose מִצִּיָּה (mitsiyyah, “from the steppe”).

4 tc The LXX has “answer you,” and some editors have adopted this. However, the reading of the MT makes better sense in the verse.
