Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 6:24-25

_ _ Irony. If you can “teach me” the right view, I am willing to be set right, and “hold my tongue”; and to be made to see my error. But then if your words be really the right words, how is it that they are so feeble? “Yet how feeble are the words of what you call the right view.” So the Hebrew is used (in Micah 2:10; Micah 1:9). The English Version, “How powerful,” etc., does not agree so well with the last clause of the verse.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 6:22-30.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes
