NET © Notes

tn For a second time (see v. 13) Zophar employs the emphatic personal pronoun. Could he be providing a gentle reminder that Job might have forgotten the sin that has brought this trouble? After all, there will come a time when Job will not remember this time of trial.

sn It is interesting to note in the book that the resolution of Job’s trouble did not come in the way that Zophar prescribed it.

tn The perfect verb forms an abbreviated relative clause (without the pronoun) modifying “water.”

TIP #04: Try using range (OT and NT) to better focus your searches. [ALL]
