Notes on Job

From the Original 1599 Geneva Bible Notes


Job 1:1

1:1 There was a man in the land of {a} Uz, whose name [was] Job; and that man was perfect and {b} upright, and {c} one that feared God, and eschewed evil.

The Argument - In this history the example of patience is set before our eyes. This holy man Job was not only extremely afflicted in outward things and in his body, but also in his mind and conscience, by the sharp temptation of his wife and friends: who by their vehement words and subtle disputations brought him almost to despair. They set forth God as a sincere judge, and mortal enemy to him who had cast him off, therefore in vain he should seek him for help. These friends came to him under pretence of consolation, and yet they tormented him more than all his afflictions did. Even so, he constantly resisted them, and eventually succeeded. In this story we must note that Job maintains a good cause, but handles it badly. His adversaries have an evil matter, but they defend it craftily. Job held that God did not always punish men according to their sins, but that he had secret judgments, of which man knew not the cause, and therefore man could not reason against God in it, but he should be convicted. Moreover, he was assured that God had not rejected him, yet through his great torments and afflictions he speaks many inconveniences and shows himself as a desperate man in many things, and as one that would resist God, and this is his good cause which he handles well. Again the adversaries maintain with many good arguments that God punishes continually according to the trespass, grounding on God's providence, his justice and man's sins, yet their intention is evil; for they labour to bring Job into despair, and so they maintain an evil cause. Ezekiel commends Job as a just man, Eze 14:14 and James sets out his patience for an example, Jas 5:11.

Job 1:3

1:3 His {d} substance also was seven thousand sheep, and three thousand camels, and five hundred yoke of oxen, and five hundred she asses, and a very great household; so that this man was the greatest of all the men of {e} the east.

Job 1:5

1:5 And it was so, when the days of [their] feasting were gone about, that Job sent and {f} sanctified them, and rose up early in the morning, and {g} offered burnt offerings [according] to the number of them all: for Job said, It may be that my sons have sinned, and {h} cursed God in their hearts. Thus did Job {i} continually.

1:11 But put forth thine hand now, and {r} touch all that he hath, and he will curse thee to {s} thy face.

Job 2:10

2:10 But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not {n} receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his {o} lips.

Job 2:11

2:11 Now when Job's three {p} friends heard of all this evil that was come upon him, they came every one from his own place; Eliphaz the Temanite, and Bildad the Shuhite, and Zophar the Naamathite: for they had made an appointment together to come to mourn with him and to comfort him.

28:12 But where shall wisdom be found? {h} and where [is] the place of understanding?

28:13 Man knoweth not {i} the price thereof; neither is it found in the land of the living.

Job 28:15

28:15 It cannot be gotten for {k} gold, neither shall silver be weighed [for] the price thereof.

Job 28:18

28:18 No mention shall be made of coral, or of {l} pearls: for the price of wisdom [is] above rubies.

Job 28:21

28:21 Seeing it is hid from the eyes of all living, and kept close from the {m} fowls of the air.

29:3 When his {a} candle shined upon my head, [and when] by his light I walked [through] {b} darkness;

29:4 As I was in the days of my youth, when the {c} secret of God [was] upon my tabernacle;

Job 29:6

29:6 When I washed my steps {d} with butter, and the rock poured me out rivers of oil;

29:9 The princes refrained talking, and laid [their] hand on their {f} mouth.

Job 29:11

29:11 When the {g} ear heard [me], then it blessed me; and when the eye saw [me], it gave witness to me:

29:12 Because I delivered the {i} poor that cried, and the fatherless, and [him that had] none to help him.

29:13 {k} The blessing of him that was ready to perish came upon me: and I caused the widow's heart to sing for joy.

30:2 Yea, whereto [might] the strength of their hands [profit] me, in whom old age was {c} perished?

Job 30:5

30:5 They were {d} driven forth from among [men],
(they cried after them as [after] a thief;)

Job 30:9

30:9 And now am I their {e} song, yea, I am their byword.

Job 30:11

30:11 Because he hath loosed my {f} cord, and afflicted me, {g} they have also let loose the bridle before me.

30:12 Upon [my] right [hand] rise the youth; they push away my feet, and they raise up against me the {h} ways of their destruction.

30:13 They mar my path, they set forward my calamity, they have no {i} helper.

30:16 And now my soul is {l} poured out upon me; the days of affliction have taken hold upon me.

30:22 Thou liftest me up to the {p} wind; thou causest me to ride [upon it], and dissolvest my substance.

30:24 Howbeit he will not stretch out [his] hand {q} to the grave, though they cry in his destruction.

30:29 I am a brother to {u} dragons, and a companion to owls.

30:30 My skin is black upon me, and my bones are burned with {x} heat.

Job 31:1

31:1 I made a covenant with mine {a} eyes; why then should I think upon {b} a maid?

Job 31:3

31:3 [Is] not destruction to the wicked? and a strange [punishment] to {c} the workers of iniquity?

Job 31:6

31:6 Let me be weighed in an even balance, that God may know mine {d} integrity.

Job 31:7

31:7 If my step hath turned out of the way, and mine heart {e} walked after mine eyes, and if any blot hath cleaved to mine hands;

Job 31:8

31:8 [Then] let me sow, and let another {f} eat; yea, let my offspring be rooted out.

Job 31:10

31:10 [Then] let my wife {g} grind unto another, and let others bow down upon her.

31:12 For it [is] a fire [that] consumeth {h} to destruction, and would root out all mine increase.

Job 31:13

31:13 If I did despise the cause of my manservant or of my maidservant, when they {i} contended with me;

Job 31:15

31:15 Did not he that made me in the womb make {l} him? and did not one fashion us in the womb?

Job 31:16

31:16 If I have withheld the poor from [their] desire, or have caused the eyes of the widow {m} to fail;

Job 31:18

31:18
(For from my youth he was brought up with me, {n} as [with] a father, and I have guided her from my mother's womb;)

Job 31:21

31:21 If I have lifted {o} up my hand against the fatherless, when I saw my help in the gate:

Job 31:22

31:22 [Then] let mine {p} arm fall from my shoulder blade, and mine arm be broken from the bone.

31:23 For destruction [from] God [was] a {q} terror to me, and by reason of his highness I could not endure.

Job 31:26

31:26 If I beheld the {r} sun when it shined, or the moon walking [in] brightness;

Job 31:27

31:27 And my heart hath been secretly enticed, or my mouth hath kissed my {s} hand:

Job 31:28

31:28 This also [were] an iniquity [to be punished by] the judge: for I should have denied the God [that is] {t} above.

Job 31:31

31:31 If the men of my {u} tabernacle said not, Oh that we had of his flesh! we cannot be satisfied.

Job 31:33

31:33 If I covered {x} my transgressions as Adam, by hiding mine iniquity in my bosom:

Job 31:34

31:34 Did I fear a great multitude, or did the contempt of families {y} terrify me, that I kept {z} silence, [and] went not out of the door?

Job 31:35

31:35 Oh that one would hear me! behold, my {a} desire [is, that] the Almighty would answer me, and [that] mine adversary had written a book.

Job 31:36

31:36 Surely I would take it upon my shoulder, [and] bind it [as] a {b} crown to me.

Job 31:37

31:37 I would declare unto him the number of my steps; as a {c} prince would I go near unto him.

Job 31:38

31:38 If my land {d} cry against me, or that the furrows likewise thereof complain;

31:39 If I have eaten the fruits thereof without money, or have caused {e} the owners thereof to lose their life:

Job 31:40

31:40 Let thistles grow instead of wheat, and cockle instead of barley. The {f} words of Job are ended.

Job 32:2

32:2 Then was kindled the wrath of Elihu the son of Barachel the {a} Buzite, of the kindred of {b} Ram: against Job was his wrath kindled, because he justified himself {c} rather than God.

Job 32:4

32:4 Now Elihu had waited till Job had spoken, because {d} they [were] elder than he.

Job 32:7

32:7 I said, Days {e} should speak, and multitude of years should teach wisdom.

Job 32:8

32:8 But [there is] a spirit in man: {f} and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding.

Job 32:11

32:11 Behold, I waited for your words; I gave ear to your reasons, whilst ye searched out {g} what to say.

Job 32:13

32:13 Lest ye should say, We have {h} found out wisdom: God thrusteth him down, not man.

Job 32:14

32:14 Now {i} he hath not directed [his] words against me: neither will I answer {k} him with your speeches.

Job 32:18

32:18 For I am full of {l} matter, the spirit within me constraineth me.

Job 32:21

32:21 Let me not, I pray you, accept any man's person, {m} neither let me give flattering titles unto man.

Job 32:22

32:22 For I know not to give flattering {n} titles; [in so doing] my maker would soon take me away.

Job 33:4

33:4 The {a} Spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life.

Job 33:6

33:6 Behold, I [am] according to thy wish in {b} God's stead: I also am formed out of the clay.

33:7 Behold, my terror shall not make thee afraid, neither shall my hand {c} be heavy upon thee.

Job 33:9

33:9 I am {d} clean without transgression, I [am] innocent; neither [is there] iniquity in me.

Job 33:13

33:13 Why dost thou strive against him? for he giveth not {e} account of any of his matters.

Job 33:14

33:14 For God speaketh {f} once, yea twice, [yet man] perceiveth it not.

Job 33:15

33:15 In a dream, in a {g} vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed;

Job 33:16

33:16 Then he openeth the ears of men, and {h} sealeth their instruction,

Job 33:17

33:17 That he may withdraw man [from his] purpose, and hide {i} pride from man.

Job 33:20

33:20 So that his {k} life abhorreth bread, and his soul dainty meat.

Job 33:22

33:22 Yea, his soul draweth near unto the grave, and his life {l} to the destroyers.

Job 33:23

33:23 If there be a {m} messenger with him, an interpreter, one among a thousand, {n} to shew unto man his uprightness:

Job 33:24

33:24 Then he is {o} gracious unto him, and saith, {p} Deliver him from going down to the pit: I have found a ransom.

Job 33:25

33:25 His flesh shall be {q} fresher than a child's: he shall return to the days of his youth:

Job 33:26

33:26 He shall pray unto God, and he will be favourable unto him: and he shall see his face with joy: for he will render unto man his {r} righteousness.

Job 33:27

33:27 He looketh upon men, and [if any] say, I have sinned, and {s} perverted [that which was] right, and it profited {t} me not;

Job 33:28

33:28 {u} He will deliver his soul from going into the pit, and his life shall see the light.

Job 33:29

33:29 Lo, all these [things] worketh God {x} oftentimes with man,

Job 33:32

33:32 If thou hast any {y} thing to say, answer me: speak, for I desire to {z} justify thee.

Job 34:2

34:2 Hear my words, O ye {a} wise [men]; and give ear unto me, ye that have knowledge.

Job 34:4

34:4 Let us choose to us {b} judgment: let us know among ourselves what [is] good.

Job 34:5

34:5 For Job hath said, I am righteous: and God hath taken {c} away my judgment.

Job 34:6

34:6 Should I lie against my {d} right? my wound [is] {e} incurable without transgression.

Job 34:7

34:7 What man [is] like Job, [who] drinketh up {f} scorning like water?

Job 34:8

34:8 Which goeth in {g} company with the workers of iniquity, and walketh with wicked men.

Job 34:9

34:9 For he hath said, {h} It profiteth a man nothing that he should {i} delight himself with God.

Job 34:14

34:14 If {k} he set his heart upon man, [if] he gather unto himself his spirit {l} and his breath;

Job 34:17

34:17 Shall even he that hateth right {m} govern? and wilt thou condemn him that is most just?

Job 34:18

34:18 [Is it fit] to say to a king, [Thou art] {n} wicked? [and] to princes, [Ye are] ungodly?

Job 34:20

34:20 In a moment shall they die, {o} and the people shall be troubled at midnight, {p} and pass away: and the mighty shall be taken away without hand.

Job 34:23

34:23 For he will not lay upon man more [than right]; that he should {q} enter into judgment with God.

Job 34:24

34:24 He shall break in pieces mighty men without {r} number, and set others in their stead.

Job 34:25

34:25 Therefore he knoweth their {s} works, and he overturneth [them] in the {t} night, so that they are destroyed.

Job 34:26

34:26 He striketh them as wicked men in the open sight of {u} others;

Job 34:28

34:28 So that they cause the cry of the poor to {x} come unto him, and he heareth the cry of the afflicted.

Job 34:30

34:30 That the {y} hypocrite reign not, lest the people be ensnared.

Job 34:31

34:31 Surely it is meet {z} to be said unto God, I have borne [chastisement], I will not offend [any more]:

Job 34:32

34:32 {a} [That which] I see not teach thou me: if I have done iniquity, I will do no more.

Job 34:33

34:33 [Should it be] according to {b} thy mind? he will recompense {c} it, whether thou refuse, or whether thou choose; and not I: therefore speak what thou knowest.

Job 34:36

34:36 My desire [is that] Job may be {d} tried unto the end because of [his] answers for wicked men.

Job 34:37

34:37 For he {e} addeth rebellion unto his sin, he clappeth [his hands] among us, and multiplieth his words against God.

Job 35:2

35:2 Thinkest thou this to be right, [that] thou saidst, My {a} righteousness [is] more than God's?

Job 35:4

35:4 I will answer thee, and thy {b} companions with thee.

Job 35:5

35:5 Look unto the heavens, and see; and behold the {c} clouds [which] are higher than thou.

Job 35:6

35:6 If thou sinnest, what doest thou {d} against him? or [if] thy transgressions be multiplied, what doest thou unto him?

Job 35:9

35:9 By reason of the multitude of oppressions they make [the oppressed] {e} to cry: they cry out by reason of the arm of the mighty.

Job 35:12

35:12 There they cry, {f} but none giveth answer, because of the pride of evil men.

Job 35:14

35:14 Although thou sayest thou shalt not see him, {g} [yet] judgment [is] before him; therefore trust thou in him.

Job 35:16

35:16 Therefore doth Job {h} open his mouth in vain; he multiplieth words without knowledge.

Job 36:3

36:3 I will fetch {a} my knowledge from afar, and will ascribe righteousness to my Maker.

Job 36:4

36:4 For truly my words [shall] not [be] false: he that is {b} perfect in knowledge [is] with thee.

Job 36:5

36:5 Behold, God [is] mighty, and despiseth not [any: he is] {c} mighty in strength [and] wisdom.

Job 36:6

36:6 He {d} preserveth not the life of the wicked: but giveth right to the poor.

Job 36:7

36:7 He withdraweth not his eyes from the righteous: but with {e} kings [are they] on the throne; yea, he doth establish them for ever, and they are exalted.

Job 36:9

36:9 Then he sheweth them their {f} work, and their transgressions that they have exceeded.

Job 36:12

36:12 But if they obey not, they shall perish by the sword, and they shall die {g} without knowledge.

Job 36:13

36:13 But the hypocrites {h} in heart heap up wrath: they {i} cry not when he bindeth them.

Job 36:14

36:14 They die in {k} youth, and their life [is] among the unclean.

Job 36:16

36:16 Even so would he have removed thee out of the strait [into] a broad place, where [there is] no straitness; and {l} that which should be set on thy table [should be] full of fatness.

Job 36:17

36:17 But thou hast fulfilled the {m} judgment of the wicked: judgment and justice take hold [on thee].

Job 36:18

36:18 {n} Because [there is] wrath, [beware] lest he take thee away with [his] stroke: then a great ransom cannot deliver thee.

Job 36:20

36:20 {o} Desire not the night, when people are cut off in their place.

Job 36:21

36:21 Take heed, regard not {p} iniquity: for this hast thou chosen rather than affliction.

Job 36:25

36:25 Every man may see it; man may behold [it] {q} afar off.

Job 36:26

36:26 Behold, God [is] great, {r} and we know [him] not, neither can the number of his years be searched out.

Job 36:27

36:27 For he maketh small the drops of water: they {s} pour down rain according to the vapour thereof:

Job 36:29

36:29 Also can [any] understand the spreadings of the clouds, [or] the noise of his {t} tabernacle?

Job 36:30

36:30 Behold, he spreadeth his light upon {u} it, and covereth the {x} bottom of the sea.

Job 36:31

36:31 For by them judgeth he {y} the people; he giveth meat in abundance.

Job 36:32

36:32 With clouds he covereth the light; and commandeth it [not to shine] by [the cloud] that cometh {z} betwixt.

Job 36:33

36:33 {a} The noise thereof sheweth concerning it, the cattle also concerning the vapour.

Job 37:1

37:1 At this also my heart {a} trembleth, and is moved out of his place.

Job 37:2

37:2 Hear attentively the {b} noise of his voice, and the sound [that] goeth out of his mouth.

Job 37:4

37:4 After it a voice roareth: he thundereth with the voice of his excellency; and he will not stay {c} them when his voice is heard.

Job 37:6

37:6 For he saith to the snow, Be thou [on] the earth; {d} likewise to the small rain, and to the great rain of his strength.

Job 37:7

37:7 He {e} sealeth up the hand of every man; that all men may know his work.

Job 37:9

37:9 Out of the south cometh the whirlwind: and cold out of the {f} north.

Job 37:10

37:10 By the breath of God frost is given: and the breadth of the waters {g} is straitened.

Job 37:11

37:11 Also by watering he {h} wearieth the thick cloud: he scattereth his {i} bright cloud:

Job 37:13

37:13 He causeth it to come, whether for {k} correction, or for his land, or for mercy.

Job 37:15

37:15 Dost thou know when God disposed them, and caused the {l} light of his cloud to shine?

Job 37:16

37:16 Dost thou know the {m} balancings of the clouds, the wondrous works of him which is perfect in knowledge?

Job 37:17

37:17 How thy garments [are] {n} warm, when he quieteth the earth by the south [wind]?

Job 37:18

37:18 Hast thou with him spread out the sky, [which is] strong, [and] as a molten looking {o} glass?

Job 37:19

37:19 Teach us what we shall say unto him; [for] we cannot order [our speech] by reason of {p} darkness.

Job 37:20

37:20 Shall it be {q} told him that I speak? if a man speak, surely he shall be swallowed up.

Job 37:21

37:21 And now [men] see not the bright light {s} which [is] in the clouds: but the wind passeth, and cleanseth them.

Job 37:22

37:22 {t} Fair weather cometh out of the north: with God [is] terrible majesty.

Job 37:23

37:23 [Touching] the Almighty, we cannot find him out: [he is] excellent in power, and in judgment, and in plenty of justice: he will not {u} afflict.

Job 38:1

38:1 Then the LORD answered Job out of the {a} whirlwind, and said,

Job 38:2

38:2 Who [is] this that {b} darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge?

Job 38:3

38:3 Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I {c} will demand of thee, and answer thou me.

Job 38:4

38:4 Where wast thou when I {d} laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding.

Job 38:7

38:7 When the morning stars {e} sang together, and all the {f} sons of God shouted for joy?

Job 38:9

38:9 When I made the cloud the garment thereof, and thick darkness a {g} swaddlingband for it,

Job 38:11

38:11 And said, Hitherto shalt thou come, but no further: and here shall thy proud waves be {h} stayed?

Job 38:12

38:12 Hast thou commanded the {i} morning since thy days; [and] caused the dayspring to know his place;

Job 38:13

38:13 That it might take hold of the ends of the earth, that the wicked might be {k} shaken out of it?

Job 38:14

38:14 It is turned as clay [to] the seal; {l} and they stand as a garment.

Job 38:16

38:16 Hast thou entered into the springs of the sea? or hast thou walked in the search of the {m} depth?

Job 38:20

38:20 That thou {n} shouldest take it to the bound thereof, and that thou shouldest know the paths [to] the house thereof?

Job 38:23

38:23 Which I have reserved {o} against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war?

Job 38:30

38:30 The waters are hid {p} as [with] a stone, and the face of the deep is frozen.

Job 38:31

38:31 Canst thou bind the sweet influences {q} of Pleiades, or loose the bands of {r} Orion?

Job 38:32

38:32 Canst thou bring forth {s} Mazzaroth in his season? or canst thou guide {t} Arcturus with his sons?

Job 38:33

38:33 Knowest thou the ordinances of heaven? canst thou set the {u} dominion thereof in the earth?

Job 38:36

38:36 Who hath put wisdom in the {x} inward parts? or who hath given understanding to the heart?

Job 38:37

38:37 Who can number the clouds in wisdom? or who can stay the {y} bottles of heaven,

Job 38:38

38:38 When the dust groweth into hardness, {z} and the clods cleave fast together?

Job 38:39

38:39 Wilt {a} thou hunt the prey for the lion? or fill the appetite of the young lions,

Job 38:41

38:41 Who provideth for the raven his food? when his young ones {b} cry unto God, they wander for lack of meat.

Job 39:2

39:2 Canst thou number the months [that] they {d} fulfil? or knowest thou the time when they bring forth?
