Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 33:2

_ _ mouth — rather, “palate,” whereby the taste discerns. Every man speaks with his mouth, but few, as Elihu, try their words with discrimination first, and only say what is really good (Job 6:30; Job 12:11).

_ _ hath spoken — rather, “proceeds to speak.”
