Job 30:17

_ _ In the Hebrew, night is poetically personified, as in Job 3:3 : “night pierceth my bones (so that they fall) from me” (not as English Version,in me”; see Job 30:30).

_ _ sinews — so the Arabic, “veins,” akin to the Hebrew; rather, “gnawers” (see on Job 30:3), namely, my gnawing pains never cease. Effects of elephantiasis.
