Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 33:17

_ _ purposeMargin, “work.” So Job 36:9. So “business” in a bad sense (1 Samuel 20:19). Elihu alludes to Job’s words (Job 17:11). “Pride,” an open “pit” (Job 33:18) which God hides or covers up, lest man should fall into it. Even the godly need to learn the lesson which trials teach, to “humble themselves under the mighty hand of God.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 33:14-18.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Pride — And God by this means is said to hide pride from man, because by these glorious representations of his Divine majesty to man, he takes him off from the admiration of his own excellency, and brings him to a sight of his own weakness, and to an humble and ready submission to his will.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Job 33:17

That he may withdraw man [from his] purpose, and hide (i) pride from man.

(i) He shows for why God sends afflictions: to beat down man's pride, and to turn from evil.
