Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 22:30

_ _ island — that is, “dwelling.” But the Hebrew expresses the negative (1 Samuel 4:21); translate “Thus He (God) shall deliver him who was not guiltless,” namely, one, who like Job himself on conversion shall be saved, but not because he was, as Job so constantly affirms of himself, guiltless, but because he humbles himself (Job 22:29); an oblique attack on Job, even to the last.

_ _ and it — Rather, “he (the one not heretofore guiltless) shall be delivered through the purity (acquired since conversion) of thy hands”; by thy intercession (as Genesis 18:26, etc.). [Maurer]. The irony is strikingly exhibited in Eliphaz unconsciously uttering words which exactly answer to what happened at last: he and the other two were “delivered” by God accepting the intercession of Job for them (Job 42:7, Job 42:8).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 22:21-30.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 22:30

He, &c. — God will have so great a respect to thy innocency, that for thy sake he will deliver those that belong to thee, or live with thee, or near thee, thought in themselves they be ripe for destruction. Their hands — By thy prayers proceeding from a pure heart and conscience. So Eliphaz and his two friends, who in this matter were not innocent, were delivered by the pureness of Job's hands, Job 42:8.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes
