NET © Notes

tn Heb “the lot is cast.” Because the ancient practice of “casting lots” is unfamiliar to many modern readers, the imagery has been updated to “throwing dice.”

sn The proverb concerns the practice of seeking divine leading through casting lots. For a similar lesson, see Amenemope (18, 19:16-17, in ANET 423).

tn Heb “all its decision.”

sn The point concerns seeking God’s will through the practice. The Lord gives guidance in decisions that are submitted to him.
