Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 36:21

_ _ regard — literally, “turn thyself to.”

_ _ iniquity — namely, presumptuous speaking against God (Job 34:5, and above, see on Job 36:17, Job 36:18).

_ _ rather than — to bear “affliction” with pious patience. Men think it an alleviation to complain against God, but this is adding sin to sorrow; it is sin, not sorrow, which can really hurt us (contrast Hebrews 11:25).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 36:15-23.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 36:21

Chosen — Thou hast chosen rather to quarrel with God, and censure his judgments, than quietly to submit to them.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Job 36:21

Take heed, regard not (p) iniquity: for this hast thou chosen rather than affliction.

(p) And so murmur against God through impatiency.
