New International Version
They draw near to the pit, and their life to the messengers of death.
King James Bible
Yea, his soul draweth near unto the grave, and his life to the destroyers.
Darby Bible Translation
And his soul draweth near to the pit, and his life to the destroyers.
World English Bible
Yes, his soul draws near to the pit, and his life to the destroyers.
Young's Literal Translation
And draw near to the pit doth his soul, And his life to those causing death.
Job 33:22 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
His soul draweth near unto the grave - נפש nephesh, soul, is here taken for the immortal spirit, as it is distinguished from חיה chaiyah, the animal life. The former draws near to the pit, שחת shachath, corruption; perhaps he meant dissipation, considering it merely as the breath. The latter draws near לממתים lamemithim, to the dead; i.e., to those who are already buried. Mr. Good translates it the Destinies; and supposes the same is meant among the Hebrews by the Memithim, as among the Greeks by their Μοιραι; the Latins, by their Parcae; the Goths, by their Fatal Sisters; the Scandinavians, by their goddess Hela; and the Arabians, by Azrael, or the angel of death. I think, however, the signification given above is more natural.
