Bible Commentary for Job 23:9

Wesley's Notes for Job 23:9


23:7 There - At that throne of grace, where God lays aside his majesty, and judges according to his wonted clemency. Dispute - Humbly propounding the grounds of their confidence. So - Upon such a fair and equal hearing. Delivered - From the damnatory sentence of God. This and some such expressions of Job cannot be excused from irreverence towards God, for which God afterwards reproves him, and Job abhorreth himself.

23:8 Is not - As a judge to hear and determine my causes, otherwise he knew God was essentially present in all places.

23:10 Gold - Which comes out of the furnace pure from all dross.

23:11 Steps - The steps or paths which God hath appointed men to walk in.
