Job 28:22


28:22 Destruction 1  and Death say,

‘With our ears we have heard a rumor about where it can be found.’ 2 

Job 31:12


31:12 For it is a fire that devours even to Destruction, 3 

and it would uproot 4  all my harvest.

Job 26:6


26:6 The underworld 5  is naked before God; 6 

the place of destruction lies uncovered. 7 

1 tn Heb “Abaddon.”

2 tn Heb “heard a report of it,” which means a report of its location, thus “where it can be found.”

3 tn Heb “to Abaddon.”

4 tn The verb means “to root out,” but this does not fit the parallelism with fire. Wright changed two letters and the vowels in the verb to get the root צָרַף (tsaraf, “to burn”). The NRSV has “burn to the root.”

5 tn Heb “Sheol.”

6 tn Heb “before him.”

7 tn The line has “and there is no covering for destruction.” “Destruction” here is another name for Sheol: אֲבַדּוֹן (’avaddon, “Abaddon”).
