Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Job 38:2


38:2 Counsel - God's counsel. For the great matter of the dispute between Job and his friends, was concerning God's counsel and providence in afflicting Job; which Job had endeavoured to obscure and misrepresent. This first word which God spoke, struck Job to the heart. This he repeats and echoes to, chap.#42:3|, as the arrow that stuck fast in him.
