Bible Commentary for Job 34:19

Wesley's Notes for Job 34:19


34:17 Shall he - That is unrighteous. Govern - Elihu's argument is the same with that of Abraham, #Gen 18:25|, and that of St. Paul, #Rom 3:5|,6. If God be unrighteous, how shall he judge or govern the world? And the argument is undeniable: if God were unjust, there would be nothing but injustice and confusion in the world, whereas we see there is a great deal of justice administered in the world, and all this must proceed from him who is the fountain of all justice, and rule, and authority. And he that makes men just, shall he be unjust? Most just - God, who hath given so many clear and unquestionable evidences of his justice, in giving just and holy laws, in encouraging and rewarding righteous persons in this life, and inflicting dreadful judgments upon tyrants and oppressors.

34:18 Wicked - Though a king may be wicked, yet his subjects neither may nor dare call him so.

34:21 For - God doth not destroy either prince or people unjustly, no nor out of his mere pleasure, but for their sins, which he sees exactly, although they use all possible arts to hide them.
