Bible Commentary for Job 32:2

Wesley's Notes for Job 32:2


32:2 The Buzite - Of the posterity of Buz, Nahor's son, #Gen 22:21|. Ram - Or, of Aram; for Ram and Aram are used promiscuously; compare #2Kings 8:28 2Chron 22:5|. His pedigree is thus particularly described, partly for his honour, as being both a wise and good man, and principally to evidence the truth of this history. He justified - Himself not without reflection upon God, as dealing severely with him, he took more care to maintain his own innocency, than God's glory. The word Elihu signifies, my God is he. They had all tried in vain to convince Job: but my God is he who both can and will do it.
