Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 21:30

_ _ Their testimony (referring perhaps to those who had visited the region where Abraham who enjoyed a revelation then lived) is that “the wicked is (now) spared (reserved) against the day of destruction (hereafter).” The Hebrew does not so well agree with [Umbreit] “in the day of destruction.” Job does not deny sinners’ future punishment, but their punishment in this life. They have their “good things” now. Hereafter, their lot, and that of the godly, shall be reversed (Luke 16:25). Job, by the Spirit, often utters truths which solve the difficulty under which he labored. His afflictions mostly clouded his faith, else he would have seen the solution furnished by his own words. This answers the objection, that if he knew of the resurrection in Job 19:25, and future retribution (Job 21:30), why did he not draw his reasonings elsewhere from them, which he did not? God’s righteous government, however, needs to be vindicated as to this life also, and therefore the Holy Ghost has caused the argument mainly to turn on it at the same time giving glimpses of a future fuller vindication of God’s ways.

_ _ brought forth — not “carried away safe” or “escape” (referring to this life), as Umbreit has it.

_ _ wrath — literally, “wraths,” that is, multiplied and fierce wrath.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 21:27-34.

They — He speaks of the same person; only the singular number is changed into the plural, possibly to intimate, that altho' for the present only some wicked men were punished, yet then all of them should suffer. Brought — As malefactors are brought forth from prison to execution.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes
