Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 22:23

_ _ thou shalt put away — rather, “If thou put away” [Michaelis].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 22:21-30.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 22:23

If — The Hebrew phrase is emphatical, and implies a thorough turning from sin, to God, so as to love him, and cleave to him, and sincerely devote a man's self to his fear and service. Built — God will repair thy ruins, and give thee more children, and bless thee with prosperity. Thou shalt — It is either, a spiritual promise, if thou dost sincerely repent, God will give the grace effectually to reform thyself and family: or, a temporal promise, thou shalt put away iniquity, or the punishment of thy sins; as iniquity is very often used: far from thy tabernacles; from all thy dwellings, and tents, and possessions.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Job 22:23

If thou return to the Almighty, thou shalt (r) be built up, thou shalt put away iniquity far from thy tabernacles.

(r) God will restore to you all your substance.
