Job 16:6

Context
NETBible

“But 1  if I speak, my pain is not relieved, 2  and if I refrain from speaking – how 3  much of it goes away?

XREF

Job 10:1; Ps 77:1-9; Ps 88:15-18

NET © Notes

tn “But” is supplied in the translation to strengthen the contrast.

tn The Niphal יֵחָשֵׂךְ (yekhasekh) means “to be soothed; to be assuaged.”

tn Some argue that מָה (mah) in the text is the Arabic ma, the simple negative. This would then mean “it does not depart far from me.” The interrogative used rhetorically amounts to the same thing, however, so the suggestion is not necessary.
