Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 9:33

_ _ daysman — “mediator,” or “umpire”; the imposition of whose hand expresses power to adjudicate between the persons. There might be one on a level with Job, the one party; but Job knew of none on a level with the Almighty, the other party (1 Samuel 2:25). We Christians know of such a Mediator (not, however, in the sense of umpire) on a level with both — the God-man, Christ Jesus (1 Timothy 2:5).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 9:25-35.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 9:33

Days — man — Or, umpire. Lay his hand — Order and govern us in pleading; and oblige us to stand to his decision. Our Lord Jesus is now the blessed days — man, who has mediated between heaven and earth, has laid his hand upon us both: to him the father hath committed all judgment. But this was not made so clear then, as it is now by the gospel, which leaves no room for such a complaint as this.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Job 9:33

Neither is there any daysman betwixt us, (a) [that] might lay his hand upon us both.

(a) Who might make an accord between God and me, speaking of impatience, and yet confessing God to be just in punishing him.
