Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Job 33:25-28.


Job 33:27

_ _ he looketh — God. Rather, with Umbreit, “Now he (the restored penitent) singeth joyfully (answering to “joy,” Job 33:26; Psalms 51:12) before men, and saith,” etc. (Proverbs 25:20; Psalms 66:16; Psalms 116:14).

_ _ perverted — made the straight crooked: as Job had misrepresented God’s character.

_ _ profited — literally, “was made even” to me; rather, “My punishment was not commensurate with my sin” (so Zophar, Job 11:6); the reverse of what Job heretofore said (Job 16:17; Psalms 103:10; Ezra 9:13).
