Eric Wiggin's Job Chapter 31 comment about verse 9 on 8/02/2021, 2:17pm...

Job asks in 31:1 why he would "think upon" a maid (KJV and older versions). STRONG'S CONCORDANCE agrees, and gives the original of the Hebrew word for the English "think" as "biyn," which seems to agree with the King James translators, but not with the 20th century translations who render Job's word as "look" or "gaze" on a maid or virgin or young woman.

This seems too contradictory as to be silly. Would these translators (ESV et al) have us believe that Job's covenant would prevent him--or us today--from gazing at the girl ("virgin") who happens to be on the platform singing a solo in a worship service? It seems to me that some of these translators have bought into Stephen Arterburn's eye-bouncing!

Or has a more recent Hebrew version of Job been discovered than that (Erasmus Textus Receptus) which the traanslators of the KJV and the 1560 had available? (???)


Mark's Job Chapter 31 comment on 2/05/2020, 5:59am...

verse 36 shows to me, the analogy of Christ our Saviour carrying his cross on his shoulder whilst wearing the crown of thorns. The book written by Jobs' adversaries is to be taken on his shoulder and worn as a crown, just as Christ our Saviour carried the cross and our sins.rnI love our Lords book. So many layers and so much wisdom, and I am only just starting my journey to our Lord.
