Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 2:10

_ _ the foolish women — Sin and folly are allied in Scripture (1 Samuel 25:25; 2 Samuel 13:13; Psalms 14:1).

_ _ receive evil — bear willingly (Lamentations 3:39).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 2:7-10.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 2:10

Shall we — Shall we poor worms give laws to our supreme Lord, and oblige him never to afflict us? And shall not those great and manifold mercies, which from time to time God hath given us, compensate these short afflictions? Ought we not to bless God for those mercies which we did not deserve; and contentedly bear those corrections which we do deserve. And if we receive so much good for the body, shall we not receive some good for our souls? That is, some affliction, whereby we may be made partakers of his holiness? Let murmuring therefore, as well as boasting, be forever excluded. Sin with his lips — By any reflections upon God, by any impatient or unbecoming expression.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Job 2:10

But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not (n) receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his (o) lips.

(n) That is, to be patient in adversity as we rejoice when he sends prosperity, and so to acknowledge him to be both merciful and just.

(o) He so bridled his desires that his tongue through impatience did not murmur against God.
