Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 42:2

_ _ In the first clause he owns God to be omnipotent over nature, as contrasted with his own feebleness, which God had proved (Job 40:15; Job 41:34); in the second, that God is supremely just (which, in order to be governor of the world, He must needs be) in all His dealings, as contrasted with his own vileness (Job 42:6), and incompetence to deal with the wicked as a just judge (Job 40:8-14).

_ _ thought — “purpose,” as in Job 17:11; but it is usually applied to evil devices (Job 21:27; Psalms 10:2): the ambiguous word is designedly chosen to express that, while to Job’s finite view, God’s plans seem bad, to the All-wise One they continue unhindered in their development, and will at last be seen to be as good as they are infinitely wise. No evil can emanate from the Parent of good (James 1:13, James 1:17); but it is His prerogative to overrule evil to good.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 42:1-6.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 42:2

Thou canst, &c. — Job here subscribes to God's unlimited power, knowledge and dominion, to prove which was the scope of God's discourse out of the whirlwind. And his judgment being convinced of these, his conscience also was convinced, of his own folly in speaking so irreverently concerning him. No thought can be withholden from thee — No thought of ours can be withholden from thy knowledge. And there is no thought of thine, which thou canst be hindered from bringing into execution.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Job 42:2

I know that thou canst do every [thing], and [that] no (a) thought can be withholden from thee.

(a) No thought so secret but you see it, nor anything that you think but that you can bring it to pass.
