Footnotes:

  1. Job 18:8 tn See Ps 25:15.
  2. Job 18:8 tn The word שְׂבָכָה (sevakhah) is used in scripture for the lattice window (2 Kgs 1:2). The Arabic cognate means “to be intertwined.” So the term could describe a net, matting, grating, or lattice. Here it would be the netting stretched over a pit.
