Text Commentary

1,2I was Jobab before the Lord gave me the name of Job. When I was called Jobab, I used to live at that time very near a much-venerated idol's temple. 1 V has a much fuller text in this chapter and reads here ‘near my house there was a certain idol (lit. ‘an idol of someone’) that was worshipped by the people’. 3And as I looked continually at the whole 4burnt-offerings offered to it, I thought to myself, Can this really be the God who made the heaven and the earth and the sea and us ourselves? How can I know? 2 So PS: V adds ‘what is true’.

Notes:

1 V has a much fuller text in this chapter and reads here ‘near my house there was a certain idol (lit. ‘an idol of someone’) that was worshipped by the people’.

2 So PS: V adds ‘what is true’.
