NETNew English Translation
24 “Do you really think anyone can hide himself
where I cannot see him?” the Lord asks.#tn Heb “Oracle of the Lord.”
“Do you not know that I am everywhere?”#tn The words “Don’t you know” are not in the text. They are a way of conveying the idea that the question which reads literally “Do I not fill heaven and earth?” expects a positive answer. They follow the pattern used at the beginning of the previous two questions and continue that thought. The words are supplied in the translation for clarity.
the Lord asks.#tn Heb “Oracle of the Lord.”
