Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 42:4

_ _ When I said, “Hear,” etc., Job’s demand (Job 13:22) convicted him of being “without knowledge.” God alone could speak thus to Job, not Job to God: therefore he quotes again God’s words as the groundwork of retracting his own foolish words.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 42:1-6.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 42:4

Hear — Hear and accept my humble confession. Enquire — I will no more dispute the matter with thee, but beg information from thee. The words which God had uttered to Job by way of challenge, Job returns to him in way of submission.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes
