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

  • James johnson
    Notice the bible tells us that God gave Job twice as much as he had back in ch.1, checking it out I found out he did because he always keeps his promises only notice his children he had 7sons and 3daughters in both ch.1 and here also.I realized Job didn't lose them he had 10 in heaven and 10 on earth. Don't we serve a awesome God?"Paul said to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord
  • BSP
    Verse 5 shows that when Job took the time to meditate on how Jehovah God's hand was in his life, he could see in his mind how God had helped him. We need to take time to read the Bible and meditate on it so that we can see how God's hand is in our lives.
  • Joseph steven Mujabi
    Surely the 42:1 has touched me a lot just look at Jobs words l know.,,,,. The words 'I know' puts to a poing of powerful faith God bless you
  • Echo Lee
    Blessed be those in misfortune but still holding their faiths. Amen.
  • Chawota joseph
    God test us in different ways just like he did to Job, but the Christians or believers of today we are lacking faith in the lord ,people easily fall into temptations. if we look at Job he kept on looking up to the lord until the lord hears his cry. We need to trust in the lord because he is the author of salvation and we will enjoy the fruits of heaven. God is there and he hears our prays
  • Sarah frierson
    I thank we have a lot to learn about God in job 42. God sure us nothing belong to us even our self. And we be patient he will gave You and answer.Amen
