Bible Commentary for Job 31:22

Wesley's Notes for Job 31:22


31:21 When - When I saw I could influence the judges to do what I pleased.

31:23 For - I stood in awe of God and of his judgments. I could not - I knew myself unable either to oppose his power, or to bear his wrath.

Adam in innocency was awed by a threatning.
