Bible Commentary for Job 33:15

Wesley's Notes for Job 33:15


33:13 He - Useth not to give an account to his creatures of the grounds and reasons of his judgments or dispensations as being the supreme governor of all persons and things, in whose will it becometh all men to acquiesce.

33:14 Yet - Although he doth not give men an account of his matters, yet he doth that which is sufficient for them. Twice - When once speaking doth not awaken men, God is graciously pleased to give them another admonition: though he will not gratify men's curiosity in enquiring into his hidden judgments, yet he will acquaint them with their duty. God speaks to us by conscience, by providence, and by ministers, of all which Elihu here treats at large, to shew Job, that God was now telling him his mind, and endeavouring to do him good. He shews first, how God admonishes men by their own consciences.

33:16 Sealeth - He imprints those instructions upon their minds.

33:17 Pride - And God by this means is said to hide pride from man, because by these glorious representations of his Divine majesty to man, he takes him off from the admiration of his own excellency, and brings him to a sight of his own weakness, and to an humble and ready submission to his will.


Discussion for Job 33:15

  • John Fungo on Job 33:15
    Job 33:15 Shows us that God speaks to his people and the simplest way to talk is through dreams, for every human being who has been created in God's image have dreams. There is no way we can meet God except through the dreams, and dreams are a prophetic language of God. So whatever the dream one gets, be it bad or good comes from God, why? see verse no 16-17
