Bible Commentary for Job 42:12

Wesley's Notes for Job 42:12


42:12 Blessed - Not only with spiritual, but also with temporal blessings. Just double to what they were, chap.#1:3|. This is a remarkable instance of the extent of the Divine providence, to things that seem minute as this, the exact number of a man's cattle; as also of the harmony of providence, and the reference of one event to another: for known unto God are all his works, from the beginning to the end.
