As you see in this example, these words are added words by the translators. Depending on your view of these things and what version of the Bible you are using, this can be distracting. The more modern version play rough with the original text and they, in general, don’t mind changing the exact words to something similar, so this is not even appearing in those Bible versions. For the Bible versions that try to maintain a one-to-one correspondence, this can appear in these more biblically true texts.
