Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 34:33

_ _ Rather, “should God recompense (sinners) according to thy mind? Then it is for thee to reject and to choose, and not me” [Umbreit]; or as Maurer, “For thou hast rejected God’s way of recompensing; state therefore thy way, for thou must choose, not I,” that is, it is thy part, not mine, to show a better way than God’s.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 34:31-37.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 34:33

Should it be — Doth God need thy advice how to govern the world, and whom, and when to reward or punish? Refuse — To submit as is expressed, Job 34:32. Therefore — If thou canst say any thing for thyself, I am ready to hear thy defence.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Job 34:33

[Should it be] according to (b) thy mind? he will recompense (c) it, whether thou refuse, or whether thou choose; and not I: therefore speak what thou knowest.

(b) Will God use your counsel in doing his works?

(c) Thus he speaks in the person of God, as though Job should chose and refuse affliction at his pleasure.
