Text Commentary

1After they had discussed the matter in this way for seven days, Elihu 1 So all MSS. See note at xxxiii. 1. answered and said to his fellow-kings, Let us go closer to him and examine him carefully to see whether it is really he or not. 2Now they were about a hundred yards away, because of the stench from my body. 3And they got up and came closer to me with perfumes in their hands, while their soldiers, accompanying them, burned 2 Lit. ‘threw’. incense all round me, so that they could come near me. 4,5Three days they spent burning 3 Lit. ‘supplying’. incense. And when they came up to me, Elihu took up the tale 4 Lit. ‘answered’. and said to me, Are you Jobab, our fellow-king? Are you the man who once was held in great esteem? Are you the man who was like the day's sun throughout the earth? Are you the man who was like the moon and the stars shining at midnight? 6,7And I said to him, I am. And at this he raised a great 8lament and lifted up his voice in a royal dirge, while the other kings and their armies made response.
