Job 21:2

_ _ consolations — If you will listen calmly to me, this will be regarded as “consolations”; alluding to Eliphaz’ boasted “consolations” (Job 15:11), which Job felt more as aggravations (“mockings,” Job 21:3) than consolations (Job 16:2).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 21:1-6.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Hear, &c. — If you have no other comfort to administer, at least afford me this. And it will be a comfort to yourselves in the reflection, to have dealt tenderly with your afflicted friend.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes
