Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Job 42:2


42:2 Thou canst, &c. - Job here subscribes to God's unlimited power, knowledge and dominion, to prove which was the scope of God's discourse out of the whirlwind. And his judgment being convinced of these, his conscience also was convinced, of his own folly in speaking so irreverently concerning him. No thought can be withholden from thee - No thought of ours can be withholden from thy knowledge. And there is no thought of thine, which thou canst be hindered from bringing into execution.


Discussion for Job 42:2

  • Yes, indeed, this is very true . God can do everything and we should have the faith that he is able to do so instead of doubting him in our lives. And also the fact that no thought can be withholden from him. He knows what we even think about so we should be careful what we meditate on that it is not sinful since out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. Therefore if we seek to think on things that are honest, just , pure , lovely , any virtue or any praise we will also do the right things in our lives instead of the sinful things at least if we know the Lord Jesus as our personal Saviour through repentance a change of mind about our sins before God and then wanting to turn away from them and then trust in the Lord Jesus , God's Son , as our own personal Saviour . Believing in our hearts that he died for all of our sins on the cross of Calvary, was buried, and rose again from the dead the third day, was then seen of men, and went back up to heaven. Which also will change our lives and make us a new creature when we turn our heart to the Lord God, the Lord Jesus Christ and believe his word, the King james Version Holy Bible in English.
