Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 34:23

_ _ (1 Corinthians 10:13; Lamentations 3:32; Isaiah 27:8). Better, as Umbreit, “He does not (needs not to) regard (as in Job 34:14; Isaiah 41:20) man long (so Hebrew, Genesis 46:29) in order that he may go (be brought by God) into judgment.” Literally, “lest his (attention) upon men” (Job 11:10, Job 11:11). So Job 34:24, “without number” ought to be translated, “without [needing any] searching out,” such as has to be made in human judgments.
