Job 19:12

Context
NETBible

His troops 1  advance together; they throw up 2  a siege ramp against me, and they camp around my tent.

XREF

Job 16:11; Job 30:12; Isa 10:5,6; Isa 51:23

NET © Notes

sn Now the metaphor changes again. Since God thinks of Job as an enemy, he attacks with his troops, builds the siege ramp, and camps around him to besiege him. All the power and all the forces are at God’s disposal in his attack of Job.

tn Heb “they throw up their way against me.” The verb סָלַל (salal) means “to build a siege ramp” or “to throw up a ramp”; here the object is “their way.” The latter could be taken as an adverbial accusative, “as their way.” But as the object it fits just as well. Some delete the middle clause; the LXX has “Together his troops fell upon me, they beset my ways with an ambush.”
