Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 22:4

_ _ Is the punishment inflicted on thee from fear of thee, in order to disarm thee? as Job had implied (see on Job 7:12; see on Job 7:20; and see on Job 10:17).

_ _ will he enter ... into judgment? — Job had desired this (Job 13:3, Job 13:21). He ought rather to have spoken as in Psalms 143:2.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 22:1-4.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Reprove — Punish thee. Because he is afraid, lest if he should let thee alone, thou wouldst grow too great and powerful for him: surely no. As thy righteousness cannot profit him, so thy wickedness can do him no hurt.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Job 22:4

Will he reprove thee for fear (b) of thee? will he enter with thee into judgment?

(b) Lest you should reprove or hurt him?
