Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 26:4

_ _ For whose instruction were thy words meant? If for me I know the subject (God’s omnipotence) better than my instructor; Job 26:5-14 is a sample of Job’s knowledge of it.

_ _ whose spirit — not that of God (Job 32:8); nay, rather, the borrowed sentiment of Eliphaz (Job 4:17-19; Job 15:14-16).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 26:1-4.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 26:4

To whom — For whose instruction hast thou uttered these things? For mine? Dost thou think I do not know, that which the meanest persons are not unacquainted with; that God is incomparably greater and better than his creatures? Whose spirit — Who inspired thee with this profound discourse of thine?

Geneva Bible Translation Notes
