Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 12:3

_ _ not inferior — not vanquished in argument and “wisdom” (Job 13:2).

_ _ such things as these — such commonplace maxims as you so pompously adduce.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 12:1-5.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 12:3

But — In these things, which he speaks not in a way of boasting, but for the just vindication both of himself, and of that cause of God, which for the substance of it he maintained rightly, as God himself attests, Job 42:7. Such things — The truth is, neither you nor I have any reason to be puffed up with our knowledge of these things: for the most barbarous nations know that God is infinite in wisdom, and power, and justice. But this is not the question between you and me.
