Job 13:23


How many are my 1  iniquities and sins? Show me my transgression and my sin. 2 


Job 22:5; Job 36:8,9; Ps 44:20,21; Ps 139:23

NET © Notes

tn The pronoun “my” is not in the Hebrew text, but has been supplied here in the translation.

sn Job uses three words for sin here: “iniquities,” which means going astray, erring; “sins,” which means missing the mark or the way; and “transgressions,” which are open rebellions. They all emphasize different kinds of sins and different degrees of willfulness. Job is demanding that any sins be brought up. Both Job and his friends agree that great afflictions would have to indicate great offenses – he wants to know what they are.
