——————- NOTES ——————-

502 See Glatzer, The Dimensions of Job, p. 62. “Job believes now, as later Deutero-Isaiah (Isa. 45: 15) did under the influence of Isaiah (8:17),in ‘a God that hides Himself.’ This hiding, the eclipse of the divine light, is the source of his abysmal despair. . . . Deutero-Isaiah expressed (40:27) the despairing complaint of the faithful remnant which thinks that because God hides Himself, Israel’s ‘way’ also ‘is hid’ from Him, and He pays no more attention to it.
