Job 29:23


They waited for me as people wait 1  for the rain, and they opened their mouths 2  as for 3  the spring rains.


Ps 72:6; Ho 6:3; Zec 10:1

NET © Notes

tn The phrase “people wait for” is not in the Hebrew text, but has been supplied in the translation.

sn The analogy is that they received his words eagerly as the dry ground opens to receive the rains.

tn The כּ (kaf) preposition is to be supplied by analogy with the preceding phrase. This leaves a double proposition, “as for” (but see Job 29:2).
