Job 31:1 New English Translation (NET Bible)

Job Vindicates Himself

31 “I made a covenant with[a] my eyes;
how then could I entertain thoughts against a virgin?[b]

Footnotes:

  1. Job 31:1 tn The idea of cutting a covenant for something may suggest a covenant that is imposed, except that this construction elsewhere argues against it (see 2 Chr 29:10).
  2. Job 31:1 tn This half-verse is the effect of the covenant. The interrogative מָה (mah) may have the force of the negative, and so be translated “not to pay attention.”
