Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 9:12

_ _ If “He taketh away,” as in my case all that was dear to me, still a mortal cannot call Him to account. He only takes His own. He is an absolute King (Ecclesiastes 8:4; Daniel 4:35).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 9:1-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 9:12

Taketh — If he determines to take away from any man his children or servants, or estate, who is able to restrain him from doing it? Or who dare presume to reprove him for it? And therefore far be it from me to quarrel with God, whereof you untruly accuse me.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Job 9:12

Behold, he taketh away, who can hinder him? (f) who will say unto him, What doest thou?

(f) He shows that when God executes his power, he does it justly, as no one can control him.
