Job 14:22


Only his flesh has pain for himself, 1  and he mourns for himself.” 2 


Job 19:20,22,26; Job 33:19-21; Pr 14:32; Lu 16:23,24

NET © Notes

tn The prepositional phrases using עָלָיו (’alayv, “for him[self]”) express the object of the suffering. It is for himself that the dead man “grieves.” So this has to be joined with אַךְ (’akh), yielding “only for himself.” Then, “flesh” and “soul/person” form the parallelism for the subjects of the verbs.

sn In this verse Job is expressing the common view of life beyond death, namely, that in Sheol there is no contact with the living, only separation, but in Sheol there is a conscious awareness of the dreary existence.
