Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 36:8-10

_ _ If they be afflicted, it is no proof that they are hypocrites, as the friends maintain, or that God disregards them, and is indifferent whether men are good or bad, as Job asserts: God is thereby “disciplining them,” and “showing them their sins,” and if they bow in a right spirit under God’s visiting hand, the greatest blessings ensue.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 36:5-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes
