Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 10:3

_ _ Job is unwilling to think God can have pleasure in using His power to “oppress” the weak, and to treat man, the work of His own hands, as of no value (Job 10:8; Psalms 138:8).

_ _ shine upon — favor with prosperity (Psalms 50:2).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 10:1-7.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 10:3

Good — Dost thou take any pleasure in it? Far be it from Job, to think that God did him wrong. But he is at a loss to reconcile his providences with his justice. And so other good men have often been, and will be, until the day shall declare it.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Job 10:3

[Is it] (d) good unto thee that thou shouldest oppress, that thou shouldest despise the (e) work of thine hands, and shine upon the (f) counsel of the wicked?

(d) Is it agreeable to your justice to do me wrong?

(e) Will you be without compassions?

(f) Will you gratify the wicked and condemn me?
