Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 36:22-25

_ _ God is not to be impiously arraigned, but to be praised for His might, shown in His works.

_ _ exalteth — rather, doeth lofty things, shows His exalted power [Umbreit] (Psalms 21:13).

_ _ teacheth — (Psalms 94:12, etc.). The connection is, returning to Job 36:5, God’s “might” is shown in His “wisdom”; He alone can teach; yet, because He, as a sovereign, explains not all His dealings, forsooth Job must presume to teach Him (Isaiah 40:13, Isaiah 40:14; Romans 11:34; 1 Corinthians 2:16). So the transition to Job 36:23 is natural. Umbreit with the Septuagint translates, “Who is Lord,” wrongly, as this meaning belongs to later Hebrew.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 36:15-23.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 36:22

Behold — God is omnipotent; and therefore can, either punish thee far worse, or deliver thee, if thou dost repent. He is also infinitely wise; and as none can work like him, so none can teach like him. Therefore do not presume to teach him how to govern the world. None teacheth with such authority and convincing evidence, with such condescension and compassion, with such power and efficacy as God doth, he teaches by the bible, and that is the best book; by his son, and he is the best master.
