Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Job 29:12-17.


Job 29:14

_ _ (Isaiah 61:10; 1 Chronicles 12:18).

_ _ judgment — justice.

_ _ diadem — tiara. Rather, “turban,” “head-dress.” It and the full flowing outer mantle or “robe,” are the prominent characteristics of an Oriental grandee’s or high priest’s dress (Zechariah 3:5). So Job’s righteousness especially characterized him.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 29:7-17.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 29:14

Put on, &c. — Perhaps he did not wear these: but his steady justice was to him instead of all those ornaments.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Job 29:14

I put on (l) righteousness, and it clothed me: my judgment [was] as a robe and a diadem.

(l) I delighted to do justice, as others did to wear costly apparel.
