Text Commentary

1Hear, then, the lament of Elihu, declaring to his servants the wealth of Job:2

You are the man who mustered the seven thousand sheep for the clothing of the beggars!  Where then is the glory of your throne? 2 You are the man who mustered the three thousand camels for the carriage of goods for the poor!  Where then is the glory of your throne? 3 You are the man who mustered the three thousand cattle for the poor man's ploughing!  Where then is the glory of your throne? 4 You are the man who had the golden couches, but are now sitting on a dunghill!  Where now is the glory of your throne? 5 You are the man who had the throne of precious stones, but are now sitting in ashes! 1 So S (= ἐν σποδῳ̂): P ‘in a roadway’ (= ἐν ὁδῳ̂). V om. verses 5 and 6.  Where now is the glory of your throne? 6 For who was like you in the midst of your children? For you blossomed together like a fragrant apple-tree!  Where now is the glory of your throne? 7 You are the man who established the sixty tables set apart for the beggars!  Where now is the glory of your throne? 8 You are the man who had the censers for the sweet-smelling assembly, 2 So PS: V ‘the censers for song made of precious stones’. but now you live in a stench!  〈Where now is the glory of your throne?〉 3 P omits this line altogether: SV insert it between ‘… assembly’ and ‘but now …’ above. 9 You are the man who had the golden lamps upon the silver lampstands, but now you wait for the light of the moon!  Where then is the glory of your throne? 10 You are the man who had the ointment made with resin from the frankincense-tree, but now you are in want. 4 So PS (= ἐν ἀποϱίᾳ): V ‘in rottenness’ (= ἐν σαπϱίᾳ).  Where then is the glory of your throne? 11 You are the man who laughed the wrong-doers and sinners to scorn, but now you yourself have become a jest!  Where now is the glory of your throne? 12 You are Job, who had great glory!  Where now is the glory of your throne?
