Job and his friends

"Job and his friends"
Woodcut by Augustin Friess

Best footnote this week:

"Zusammengeklaubten bröckelnden Lehmklüppchen gleicht das was ihr gegen mich zusammenkramt."   All you need to know about that sentence is that it translates only three Hebrew words.

(Edwin M. Good, In Turns of Tempest: A Reading of Job, with translation (Stanford, California: Stanford University Press, 1990), note pg.82. Professor Good's own translation of 13:12b: "Your shields are shields of clay.")
