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 (1990), note on page 82. Professor Good’s own translation of 13:12b: “Your shields are shields of clay.”]
