Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 22:8

_ _ mightyHebrew, “man of arm” (Psalms 10:15; namely, Job).

_ _ honourableHebrew, “eminent, or, accepted for countenance” (Isaiah 3:3; 2 Kings 5:1); that is, possessing authority. Eliphaz repeats his charge (Job 15:28; so Zophar, Job 20:19), that it was by violence Job wrung houses and lands from the poor, to whom now he refused relief (Job 22:7, Job 22:9) [Michaelis].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 22:5-14.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes
