Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 11:6

_ _ to that which is! — Rather, “they are double to [man’s] wisdom” [Michaelis]. So the Hebrew is rendered (Proverbs 2:7). God’s ways, which you arraign, if you were shown their secret wisdom, would be seen vastly to exceed that of men, including yours (1 Corinthians 1:25).

_ _ exacteth — Rather, “God consigns to oblivion in thy favor much of thy guilt.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 11:1-6.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 11:6

Secrets — The unsearchable depths of God's wisdom in dealing with his creatures. Double — That they are far greater (the word double being used indefinitely for manifold, or plentiful) than that which is manifested. The secret wisdom of God is infinitely greater than that which is revealed to us by his word or works: the greatest part of what is known of God, is the least part of those perfections that are in him. And therefore thou dost rashly in judging so harshly of his proceedings with thee, because thou dost not comprehend the reasons of them, and in judging thyself innocent, because thou dost not see thy sins; whereas the all — knowing God sees innumerable sins in thee, for which he may utterly destroy thee.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Job 11:6

And that he would shew thee the (c) secrets of wisdom, that [they are] double to that which is! Know therefore that God exacteth of thee [less] than thine iniquity [deserveth].

(c) Which is not to stand in justifying of yourself: he signifies that man will never be overcome while he reasons with another, and therefore God must break off the controversy, and stop man's mouth.
