Job 12:7 But ask now the beasts and they shall teach you and the fowls of the air and they shall tell you..(*)

Job 12:8 Or speak to the earth.(*).and it shall teach you and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto you.

Job 12:9 Who knows not in all these that the hand of the LORD hath wrought this?

Job 12:10 In whose hand is the soul of every living thing and the breath of all mankind.

Job 12:14 Behold, he breaks down and it cannot be built again. He shuts up a man and there can be no opening.

Job 12:15 Behold, he withholds the waters and they dry up. Also he sends them out and they overturn the earth.

Job 12:16-22 With him is strength and wisdom; the deceived and the deceiver are his.

Job 12:17-22 He leads counsellors away spoiled and makes the judges fools. He looses the bond of kings and girds their loins with a girdle. He leads princes away spoiled and overthrows the mighty. He removes away the speech of the trusty and takes away the understanding of the aged. He pours contempt upon princes and weakens the strength of the mighty. He discovers deep things out of darkness and brings out to light the shadow of death.

Job 12:23 He increases the nations and destroys them. He enlarges the nations, and straitens them again.

Job 12:24,25 He takes away the heart of the chief of the people of the earth and causes them to wander in a wilderness where there is no way. They grope in the dark without light and he makes them to stagger like a drunken man.

Job 13:4 But you are forgers of lies; you are all physicians of no value.

Job 13:5,6 O that you would altogether hold your peace! and it should be your wisdom. Hear now my reasoning and hearken to the pleadings of my lips.

Job 13:7 Will you speak wickedly against God? and talk deceitfully for him?.(if it's against the principles of love {and God is love}, then it's against God)

Job 13:8 Will you accept his person? Will you contend for God?

Job asks whether they would undertake to maintain the cause of God and he may mean to intimate that they were wholly disqualified for such an undertaking. He not only reproves them for a want of candor and impartiality, as in the previous expressions, but he means to say that they were unfit in all respects to be the advocates of God. They did not understand the principles of his administration. Their views were narrow, their information limited and their arguments either common-place or unsound. According to this interpretation, emphasis is really on the word "ye", "will YE contend {do you think that YOU are really fit to} for God?" It's a slight where he is really saying, You are so thoughtless and negligent what makes you think you qualify to know anything about the Creator? ...comprised from Barnes Notes.

Job 13:9,10 Is it good that he should search you out? or as one man mocks another, do you so mock him? He will surely reprove you, if you do secretly accept persons.(make a surreptitious deal with another or others for selfish advantage and obviously at the expense in some way and/or to the disadvantage of another or others).

Job 13:15 Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him, but I will maintain.(original can also just as easily mean 'vindicate').mine own ways before him.

Job 13:26,27 For you write bitter things against me and make me to possess the iniquities of my youth. You put my feet also in the stocks.(a device consisting of a heavy timber frame with holes for confining the ankles and sometimes the wrists, formerly used for punishment).and look narrowly unto all my paths.(allowing borders to ensure his life went nowhere), you set a print.(a cut in the foot so he couldn't really go anywhere).upon the heels of my feet.

Job 14:1 Man that is born of a woman is of few days and full of trouble.(Job 5:7)..(why is it this way?)

Job 14:7 For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down that it will sprout again and that the tender branch thereof will not cease.

Job 14:10 But man dies and wastes away, yea, man gives up the ghost and where is he?

Job 14:14 If a man die, shall he live again? All the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change come..(and, he wasn't a cheepo in a restaurant, Ha ha!) (Job knew there was another dimension to life, other than just the physical; what was it?)

Job 14:15 You call and I will answer you. You will have a desire.(the word 'desire' in the original Hebrew means 'to long for, yearn after').to the work of your hands.

Job 14:16 For now you number my steps. Dost.(do).thou.(you).not watch over my sin?.(Psalms 130:3)

Job 15:10 With us are both the grayheaded and very aged men, much elder than thy father.

Job 15:14.What is man, that he should be clean? and he which is born of a woman, that he should be righteous?

Job 15:20-30 The wicked man travails with pain all his days and the number of these years is hidden to others. A dreadful sound is in his ears. In prosperity the destroyer shall come upon him. He believes not that he shall return out of darkness and he is waiting for of the sword. He wanders abroad for bread, saying, Where is it? he knows that the day of darkness is ready at his hand. Trouble and anguish shall make him afraid as they prevail against him, as a king ready to the battle. For he stretches out his hand against God and strengthens himself against the Almighty. He runs upon him, even on his neck, upon the thick bosses of his bucklers. Because he covers his face with his fatness and makes collops of fat on his flanks. And he dwells in desolate cities and in houses which no man inhabits, which are ready to become heaps. He shall not be rich, neither shall his substance continue, neither shall he prolong the perfection thereof upon the earth. He shall not depart out of darkness. The flame shall dry up his branches and by the breath of his mouth shall he go away.

Job 15:20-30 The wicked man travails with pain all his days.(or 'is pained daily', but, being wicked {and all 'being wicked' means is, one is still a victim of mass mind influence and out of sync with the laws of the universe that could change things for him:.1Samuel 24:13}, one does not seek a way from it and learns to live with it, such as we all have).and the number of years is hidden to the oppressor.(he always thinks in the now, seeing only his life as an immediate concern; he just doesn't realize what is causing him to feel this way and get the results in life that he does; he doesn't realize how to get out of it and has no idea how long he'll be in the dark about why his life is the way it is). A dreadful sound is in his ears.(constantly in fear). In prosperity the destroyer shall come upon him. He believes not that he shall return out of darkness.(doesn't see how he could be any different as his whole life was built on the way he has been and so he waits for death).and he is waited for of the sword.(figure he's finished anyway, so why change?). He wandereth abroad for bread, saying, Where is it? he knows that the day of darkness is ready at his hand.(in the end for him, he'll just want some comfort from a meal). Trouble and anguish shall make him afraid as they prevail against him, as a king ready to the battle. For he stretches out his hand against God and strengtheneth himself against the Almighty. He runneth upon him, even on his neck, upon the thick bosses.(means 'knobs').of his bucklers.(something he has confidence in that can defend him; a shield with protuberances on it facing outward toward an enemy). Because he covers his face with his fatness and maketh collops of fat.(rolls in his fat flesh).on his flanks.(he carries on being the selfish pig he's always been). And he dwells in desolate cities and in houses which no man inhabits, which are ready to become heaps.(his ideas are his alone and they don't even do him much good; no one else wants anything to do with him). He shall not be rich, neither shall his substance continue.(he'll lose all he's gained), neither shall he prolong the perfection thereof upon the earth. He shall not depart out of darkness.(he's surrounded himself for years with a dark lifestyle, so much so, it's a habit with him). The flame shall dry up his branches and by the breath of his mouth shall he go away.(he'll decide he's done so much wrong that he just wants to go:.Isaiah 54:16 "...I have created the waster to destroy").

Job 15:35 They conceive mischief and bring forth vanity and their belly prepares deceit.

Job 16:19 Also now, behold, my witness is in heaven and my record is on high.

Job 17:6 He has made me also a byword of the people and aforetime I was as a tabret.(original 'spit', 'an open abhorring'; Job here felt that everyone who knew him felt repelled by him; more on Job).

Job 17:11 My days are past, my purposes are broken off, even the thoughts of my heart..(Job was one discouraged guy at this point in his life)

Job 17:12 They change the night into day. The light is short because of darkness..(Job wasn't get much inspiration at this time and none that lasted but only for a short time)

Job 17:13-16 If I wait, the grave is mine house. I have made my bed in the darkness. I have said to corruption, Thou art my father, to the worm, Thou art my mother and my sister. And where is now my hope? As for my hope, who shall see it? They shall go down to the bars of the pit, when our rest together is in the dust.

Job 19:10 He has destroyed me on every side and I am gone and mine hope has he removed like a tree.(Job 14:7).

Job is saying that just like a tree could have a branch hacked off by whomever came to it, so it was that he felt, where he was just there and God unfairly hacked away at his life.

Job 19:13-19 He has put my brethren far from me and mine acquaintance are verily.estranged from me. My kinsfolk have failed and my familiar friends have forgotten me. They that dwell in mine house and my maids, count me for a stranger. I am an alien in their sight. I called my servant and he gave me no answer. I intreated him with my mouth. My breath is strange to my wife, though I intreated for the children's sake of mine own body. Yea, young children despised me. I arose and they spake against me. All my inward friends abhorred me and they whom I loved are turned against me.

Job 19:23 Oh that my words were now written! oh that they were printed in a book!.(no printing then, original is 'inscribed')

Job 19:24 That they were graven with an iron pen and lead in the rock for ever!

Job 19:25 For I know that my redeemer lives.(*).and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth.(?).

Job 19:26 And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God..(or, 'God will again be in my body'; Job knew that the highest state of living was the Creator personified as Job; likewise us)

Job 20:4-18 Knowest thou not this of old, since man was placed upon earth, That the triumphing of the wicked is short and the joy of the hypocrite but for a moment? Though his excellency mount up to the heavens and his head reach unto the clouds; Yet he shall perish for ever like his own dung. They which have seen him shall say, Where is he? He shall fly away as a dream and shall not be found. Yea, he shall be chased away as a vision of the night. The eye also which saw him shall see him no more; neither shall his place any more behold him. His children shall seek to please the poor and his hands shall restore their goods. His bones are full of the sin of his youth, which shall lie down with him in the dust. Though wickedness be sweet in his mouth, though he hide it under his tongue; Though he spare it and forsake it not, but keep it still within his mouth. Yet his meat in his bowels is turned, it is the gall of asps within him. He hath swallowed down riches and he shall vomit them up again. God shall cast them out of his belly. He shall suck the poison of asps and the viper's tongue shall slay him. He shall not see the rivers, the floods, the brooks of honey and butter. That which he laboured for shall be restored and he shall not swallow it down.(keep it from those he took it from). According to his substance shall the restitution be and he shall not rejoice therein.

Job 20:19 Because he hath oppressed and hath forsaken the poor and because he hath violently taken away an house which he builded not.

Job 20:22 In the fulness of his sufficiency.(*).he shall be in straits; every hand of the wicked shall come upon him.

Job 20:27-29 The heaven shall reveal his iniquity and the earth shall rise up against him. The increase of his house shall depart and his goods shall flow away in the day of his wrath.(when his evil works are requited). This is the portion of a wicked man from God and the heritage appointed unto him by God..(what those who are evil receive, unless they change; we all reap any evils that we may have sown, so we learn to be good)

Job 21:15 What is the Almighty, that we should serve him? and what profit should we have, if we pray unto him?

Job 21:17 How oft is the candle of the wicked put out! and how oft cometh their destruction upon them! God distributeth sorrows in his anger.

Job 21:22 Shall any teach God knowledge? seeing he judges.(how?).those that are high.

Job 22:12 Is not God in the height of heaven? and behold the height of the stars, how high they are!

Job 22:15,16 Have you marked the old way which wicked men have trodden? Which were cut down out of time, whose foundation was overflown with a flood.

Job 22:21 Acquaint now yourself with him and be at peace, thereby good shall come unto you.

More accurate to the original: "Become familiar with peace because from here good comes."....because it's inside you and you now have given attention to it. That's you become familiar with peace? Peace is a quality of love and giving attention to the God qualities of love inside you is love; God is love. In meditation when your attention is on peace, love, harmony, wholeness, etc., you are becoming more familiar with the higher consciousness things the more you see the grossness of your dark side.

Job 22:24 Then shall you lay up gold as dust and the gold of Ophir as the stones of the brooks.

Job 22:28 Thou shalt also decree a thing and it shall be established unto you and the light shall shine upon thy ways.

Job 24:1 Why, seeing times are not hidden from the Almighty, do they that know him not see his days?

They who know of God must know God is aware of all goings on, so why is it Job asks, that they don't see how their lives can be affected by God? the answer is, they don't care to know what really God is as they don't want to have their lives affected by what they may learn about God; so, they know of God but willingly lack gaining knowledge that would take them deeper into God:.Romans 10:3.

Job 24:2-8 Some remove the landmarks and they violently take away flocks and feed thereof. They drive away the ass of the fatherless and they take the widow's ox for a pledge. They turn the needy out of the way. The poor of the earth hide themselves together. Behold, as wild asses in the desert, go they forth to their work, rising betimes for a prey. The wilderness yieldeth food for them and for their children. They reap every one his corn in the field and they gather the vintage of the wicked. They cause the naked to lodge without clothing, that they have no covering in the cold. They are wet with the showers of the mountains and embrace the rock for want of a shelter.

Job 24:2-8 Some remove the landmarks and they violently take away flocks and feed thereof.(as kings in error have always believed they had the right to do; one example, Benhadad:.1Kings 20:1-28). They drive away the ass of the fatherless and they take the widow's ox for a pledge. They turn the needy out of the way. The poor of the earth hide themselves together. Behold, as wild asses in the desert, go they forth to their work, rising betimes for a prey. The wilderness yieldeth food for them and for their children. They reap every one his corn in the field and they gather the vintage of the wicked.(they take by various means of force the food others worked hard in producing; they obviously believe in slavery). They cause the naked to lodge without clothing, that they have no covering in the cold. They are wet with the showers of the mountains and embrace the rock for want of a shelter.

Job 24:9 They pluck the fatherless from the breast and take a pledge of the poor.

Job 24:10-12 They cause him to go naked without clothing and they take away the sheaf from the hungry, Which make oil within their walls and tread their winepresses and suffer thirst. Men groan from out of the city and the soul of the wounded crieth out, yet God layeth not folly to them.(why?).

Job 24:13 They are of those that rebel against the light. They know not the ways.(what ways?).thereof.(why?.Matthew 21:32), nor abide in the paths thereof.

Job 24:14-16 The murderer rising with the light killeth the poor and needy and in the night is as a thief. The eye also of the adulterer waiteth for the twilight, saying, No eye shall see me and disguises his face. In the dark they dig through houses, which they had marked for themselves in the daytime. They know not the light..(one can never know the light from a low consciousness unless he decides to come out of the darkness:.Psalms 74:20).

Job 24:19-24 Drought and heat consume the snow waters; so doth the grave those which have sinned. The womb shall forget him.(no coming back for these types). The worm shall feed sweetly on him. He shall be no more remembered and wickedness shall be broken as a tree. He evil entreateth the barren that beareth not and doeth not good to the widow.(does evil to the less fortunate). He draweth also the mighty with his power.(sucks all in he can). He riseth up and no man is sure of life.(creates fear and insecurity). Though it be given him to be in safety.(for the time being), whereon he resteth, yet his eyes are upon their ways.(always looking for any threat to him). They are exalted for a little while, but are gone and brought low. They are taken out of the way as all other and cut off as the tops of the ears of corn.(failing to realize the shortness of life on Earth:.Job 27:8).

Job 25:4-6 How then can man be justified with God? or how can he be clean that is born of a woman? Behold even to the moon and it shines not; yea, the stars are not pure in his sight. How much less man, that is a worm? and the son of man, which is a worm?

Job 25:4-6 How then can man be justified with God? or how can he be clean that is born of a woman?.(that is, mankind comes into this world with three strokes against him).Behold even to the moon and it shines not; yea, the stars are not pure in his sight. How much less man, that is a worm? and the son of man.(man's offspring), which is a worm?.(in Isaiah 43:7 "...I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him.")

Job 26:7 He stretches out the north over the empty place and hangs the earth upon nothing.

Job 26:12 He divides the sea with his power and by his understanding he smites through the proud.

Job 27:8 For what is the hope of the hypocrite, though he has gained, when God takes away his soul.(Matthew 16:26)?

Job 28:7 There is a path which no fowl knows and which the vulture's eye has not seen.

Job 28:8-10 The lion's whelps have not trodden it, nor the fierce lion passed by it. He puts forth his hand upon the rock. He overturns the mountains by the roots. He cuts out rivers among the rocks and his eye sees every precious thing.

Job 28:11 He binds the floods from overflowing and the thing that is hid brings he forth to light..(nothing hidden)

Job 28:20,21 Whence then comes wisdom? and where is the place of understanding? seeing it is hid from the eyes of all living and kept close from the fowls of the air.

Job 28:23 God understands the way thereof and he knows the place thereof.

Job 28:26,27 When he made a decree for the rain and a way for the lightning of the thunder. Then did he see it and declare it. He prepared it, yea and searched it out.

Job 28:28 And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord is wisdom and to depart from evil is understanding..(Romans 6:13)

Job 29:2-5 Oh that I were as in months past, as in the days when God preserved me; When his candle shined upon my head and when by his light I walked through darkness, as I was in the days of my youth, when the secret of God was upon my tabernacle, when the Almighty was yet with me, when my children were about me.

Job 29:11-17 When the ear heard me, then it blessed me and when the eye saw me, it gave witness to me, because I delivered the poor that cried and the fatherless and him that had none to help him. The blessing of him that was ready to perish came upon me and I caused the widow's heart to sing for joy. I put on righteousness and it clothed me. My judgment was as a robe and a diadem. I was eyes to the blind, and feet was I to the lame. I was a father to the poor and the cause which I knew not I searched out. And I brake the jaws of the wicked and plucked the spoil out of his teeth.

Job 30:20 I cry unto you and you do not hear me. I stand up and you regard me not.

Job 30:21 Thou are become cruel to me. With your strong hand you oppose yourself against me.

Job 30:26 When I looked for good, then evil came unto me and when I waited for light, there came darkness.

Job 31:1-8 I made a covenant.(an agreement).with my eyes; why then should I think upon a maid? For what portion of God is there from above? and what inheritance of the Almighty from on high? Is not destruction to the wicked? and a strange punishment to the workers of iniquity? Does not he see my ways and count all my steps? If I have walked with vanity, or if my foot has hasted to deceit, Let me be weighed in an even balance that God may know my integrity.(doesn't God notice how great I am, how many good works I've done for others?). If my step has turned out of the way and my heart walked after my eyes and if any blot has cleaved to my hands.(I know I've done no wrong), Then let me sow and let another eat, yes, let my offspring be rooted out.

Job 31:9-12 If my heart has been deceived by a woman, or if I have laid wait at my neighbour's door.(to somehow take advantage of him); Then let my wife grind unto another.(go with some other guy).and let others bow down upon her. For this is an heinous crime, yea, it is an iniquity to be punished by the judges. For it is a fire that consumes to destruction and would root out all my increase.

Job 31:13-28 If I did despise the cause of my manservant or of my maidservant when they contended with me.(I considered others); What then shall I do when God rises up? and when he visits, what shall I answer him? Did not he that made me in the womb make him too? and did not one fashion us in the womb? If I have withheld the poor from their desire or have caused the eyes of the widow to fail, Or have eaten my morsel myself alone.(I shared).and the fatherless has not eaten thereof, For from my youth he was brought up with me, as with a father and I have guided her from my mother's womb. If I have seen any perish for want of clothing, or any poor without covering, If his loins have not blessed me and if he were not warmed with the fleece of my sheep, If I have lifted up my hand against the fatherless when I saw my help in the gate? Then let mine arm fall from my shoulder blade and my arm be broken from the bone. For destruction from God was a terror to me.(Job feared this being He believed was separate from him).and by reason of his highness I could not endure. If I have made gold my hope or have said to the fine gold, You are my confidence; If I rejoiced because my wealth was great and because my hand had gotten much; If I beheld the sun when it shined, or the moon walking in brightness; And my heart has been secretly enticed, or my mouth has kissed my hand? This also were an iniquity to be punished by the judge. For I should have denied the God that is above.

Job 31:29,30 If I rejoiced at the destruction of him that hates me or lifted up myself when evil found him. Neither have I suffered my mouth to sin by wishing a curse to his soul.

Job 31:31,32 If the men of my tabernacle said not, Oh that we had of his flesh! we cannot be satisfied. The stranger did not lodge in the street, but I opened my doors to the traveller.

Job 31:33 If I covered my transgressions as Adam, by hiding mine iniquity in my bosom.

Job 31:34 Did I fear a great multitude or did the contempt of families terrify me that I kept silence and went not out of the door.(didn't withdraw from interaction with others because of what he feared they may have thought of him)?

Job 31:35 Oh that one would hear me! behold my desire is that the Almighty would answer me and that my adversary had written a book.

Job 31:35 Oh that one would hear me! behold my desire is that the Almighty would answer me.(shows Job knew nothing at that time about the high road of the soul).and that my adversary.(at this low point in Job's life he felt as is God was against him).had written a book.(Job felt God should write down whatever charge may be against him so he would know clearly what it was and deal with it).

Job 31:36-40 Surely I would take it upon my shoulder and bind it as a crown to me. I would declare unto him the number of my steps; as a prince would I go near unto him. If my land cry against me or that the furrows likewise thereof complain, If I have eaten the fruits thereof without money or have caused the owners thereof to lose their life, Let thistles grow instead of wheat and cockle.(noisome weeds).instead of barley. The words of Job are ended.

Job 32:1 So these three men ceased to answer Job, because he was righteous in his own eyes.

Job 32:1 So these three men.(Job's close friends who were with him through Job's trials tried to help Job to figure out what he may have done that caused such a life reversal for him; Job's time with his friends and what they said to him and what he replied, begins in Job 2:11-13).ceased to answer Job, because he was righteous in his own eyes.

Job 32:2 Then was kindled the wrath of Elihu the son of Barachel the Buzite of the kindred of Ram. Against Job was his wrath kindled, because he justified himself rather than God..(Elihu felt that Job had all the reasons why what was happening to him was unjust; this is how he justified himself {Luke 10:29; 16:15}, making himself look ok, but Job was missing seeing it from God's side, which was, all Job did was for Job's glory and he did much good, but he failed to want to elevate his friends to the same status, that is, until God took a hand in it all:.Job 42:10)

Job 32:8 But there is a spirit in man and the inspiration of the Almighty gives them understanding.

Job 32:8 But there is a spirit in man and the inspiration.(original for word 'inspiration' is 'breath', meaning the Infinite One {or, more commonly called, 'God'} is the sustainer of mankind).of the Almighty gives them.(word 'them' not in the original).understanding.(original is 'understanding', 'discernment', 'consider', 'regard', that is, wisely able to choose: Deuteronomy 30:19)..(we are made different than animals)

Job 33:4 The Spirit of God has made me and the breath of the Almighty has given me life.

Job 33:25 His flesh shall be fresher than a child's. He shall return to the days of his youth.

Job 34:10 Therefore hearken unto me, you men of understanding. Far be it from God, that he should do wickedness and from the Almighty, that he should commit iniquity.

Job 34:11 For the work of a man shall he render unto him and cause every man to find according to his ways.

Job 33:13 Why do you strive against him? for he gives not account of any of his matters..(Deuteronomy 29:29)

Job 33:14-18 For God speaks once, yea twice, yet man perceives it not. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed; Then he opens the ears of men and seals their instruction, That he may withdraw man from his purpose and hide pride from man.(men and womens' purposes are often motivated by pride). He keeps back his soul from the pit and his life from perishing by the sword.(dreams with messages of protection).

Job 34:3 For the ear tries words, as the mouth tastes meat.(original for 'meat' is 'food').

Job 34:9 For he has said, It profits a man nothing that he should delight himself with God..(talking about one who as the ancients, wanted nothing to do with God)

Job 34:12 Yea, surely God will not do wickedly, neither will the Almighty pervert judgment.(unlike some judges).

Job 34:18.Is it fit to say to a king, You are wicked? and to princes, you are ungodly?

Job 34:19 How much less to him that accepts not the persons of princes, nor regards the rich more than the poor? for they all are the work of his hands.

Adam Clarke's Commentary:."If it be utterly improper to speak against a king or civil governor, how much more so to speak disrespectfully of God, who is not influenced by human caprices or considerations and who regards the rich and the poor alike, being equally his creatures and equally dependent on his providence and mercy for their support and salvation."

Job 34:21 For his eyes are upon the ways of man and he sees all his goings..(original is 'eye way man see steps'; what does your spirit tell you it means?)

Job 34:22 There is no darkness, nor shadow of death, where the workers of iniquity may hide themselves.

Job 34:26,27 He strikes them as wicked men in the open sight of others, because they turned back from him and would not consider any of his ways.(though.prompted daily {*}, low consciousness man avoids delving into ways proved better for him: Romans 3:11,12; Psalms 50:22,23).

Job 34:29 When he gives quietness, who then can make trouble? And when he hides his face who then can behold him? whether it be done against a nation, or against a man only.

Job 35:13 Surely God will not hear vanity, neither will the Almighty regard it.

Job 35:14 Although you say you shall not see him, yet judgment is before him; therefore trust you in him.

Job 36:15 He delivers the poor in his affliction and opens their ears in oppression.

Job 37:14 Hearken unto this O Job; stand still and consider the wondrous works of God.

Job 38:1 Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind and said, 

Job 38:2 Who is this that darkens counsel.(Job's beliefs and his words based upon them, didn't make the ways of God clearer, but rather muddied the waters).by words without knowledge?.(also Job 42:3)

Job 38:3 Gird up now thy loins like a man, for I will demand of you and answer you me.

Job 38:4 Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare if you have understanding..(Deuteronomy 29:29)

Job 38:5,6 Who has laid the measures thereof, if you know? or who has stretched the line upon it? Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof;

Job 38:7 When the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy?

Job 38:8-11 Or who shut up the sea with doors, when it brake forth, as if it had issued out of the womb? When I made the cloud the garment thereof and thick darkness a swaddlingband for it and brake up for it my decreed place and set bars and doors and said, Hitherto shall you come, but no further and here shall thy proud waves be stayed?

Job 38:12-30 Have you commanded the morning since your days, and caused the dayspring.(morning).to know his place; That it might take hold of the ends of the earth, that the wicked might be shaken out of it? It is turned as clay to the seal and they stand as a garment. And from the wicked their light is withholden, and the high arm shall be broken. Hast you entered into the springs of the sea? or have you walked in the search of the depth? Have the gates of death been opened unto you? or have you seen the doors of the shadow of death? Have you perceived the breadth of the earth? declare if you know it all. Where is the way where light dwells? and as for darkness, where is the place thereof, That you should take it to the bound thereof and that you should know the paths to the house thereof? Know you it, because you were then born? or because the number of your days is great? Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail, Which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war? By what way is the light parted, which scatters the east wind upon the earth? Who has divided a watercourse for the overflowing of waters, or a way for the lightning of thunder; To cause it to rain on the earth, where no man is; on the wilderness, wherein there is no man; To satisfy the desolate and waste ground; and to cause the bud of the tender herb to spring forth? Has the rain a father? or who has begotten the drops of dew? Out of whose womb came the ice? and the hoary frost of heaven, who has gendered it? The waters are hid as with a stone and the face of the deep is frozen.

Job 38:31,32 Can you bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion? Can you bring forth Mazzaroth.(the 12 signs of the Zodiac and their 36 associated constellations).in his season? or can you guide Arcturus with his sons?

Job 38:33-38 Know you the ordinances of heaven? can you set the dominion thereof in the earth? Can you lift up your voice to the clouds, that an abundance of waters may cover you.(in other words 'can you send the rain?')? Can you send lightnings, that they may go and say unto you, Here we are? Who has put wisdom in the inward parts? or who has given understanding to the heart? Who can number the clouds in wisdom? or who can stay the bottles of heaven, when the dust grows into hardness and the clods cleave fast together? 

Job 38:39 Will you hunt the prey for the lion? or fill the appetite of the young lions, 

Job 38:40,41 When they couch in their dens and abide in the covert to lie in wait? Who provides for the raven his food? when his young ones cry unto God, they wander for lack of meat.

Job 40:9 Have you an arm like God? Or can you thunder with a voice like him? 

Job 40:10 Deck yourself now with majesty and excellency and array yourself with glory and beauty..(how?)

Job 40:11 Cast abroad the rage of your wrath. And behold every one that is proud and abase him.

Job 40:12 Look on every one that is proud and bring him low and tread down the wicked in their place.

Job 41:1-9 Can you draw out leviathan.(crocodile).with an hook? or his tongue with a cord which thou let down?.(let down into the water to catch him) Can you put an hook into his nose? or bore his jaw through with a thorn? Will he make many supplications unto thee? will he speak soft words unto thee?.(will he say please don't do that, I'll be a good crocodile).Will he make a covenant with thee?.(will he strike a deal with you to let him alone?).will you take him for a servant for ever?.(will he let you make him a pet).Wilt you play with him as with a bird? or will you bind him for your maidens?.(will you let your daughters play with him?).Shall the companions make a banquet of him?.(will he let you serve him for dinner or cut him up and sell his parts?), shall they part him among the merchants? Can you fill his skin with barbed irons or his head with fish spears? Lay your hand upon him and if you live to remember the battle, you won't do that again. Behold, the hope of him is in vain.(you'll never change his nature). Even the sight of him will scare you.

Job 41:10 None is so fierce that dare stir him up.(no person is so fierce that he has the confidence to go against him). Who then is able to stand before me?

Job 41:18 By his neesings.(sneezings).a light does shine and his eyes are like the eyelids of the morning.

Job 42:1,2 Then Job answered the LORD and said, I know that you can do every thing and that no thought can be withheld.(original is 'no thought can be fenced' meaning thoughts produce, that is, they are all part of what is God).from you.(words 'from you' not in original).

Job 42:3 Who is he.(Job referring to himself).that hides counsel without knowledge? therefore have I uttered that I understood not.(Job told what he believed, but didn't fully understand {*}); things too wonderful for me, which I knew not.(things that I now understand, which I didn't before; the spiritual journey is growth for all)..(also Job 38:2)

Job 42:4 Hear, I beseech you and I will speak. I will demand.(original for word 'demand' is 'ask').of you and declare you unto me.(original for 'of you and declare unto me' is simply 'to know'; so, Job was asking of God so he could learn and he wanted God to also know his new attitude).

Job 42:5 I have heard of you by the hearing of the ear, but now my eye sees you..(now he comprehends how great this God is)

Job 42:7 And it was so, that after the LORD had spoken these words unto Job, the LORD said to Eliphaz the Temanite, My wrath is kindled against you and against your two friends. For you have not spoken of me the thing that is right as my servant Job has.

Job 42:8 Therefore take unto you now seven bullocks and seven rams and go to my servant Job and offer up for yourselves a burnt offering and my servant Job shall pray for you. For him will I accept; lest I deal with you after your folly, in that you have not spoken of me the thing which is right, like my servant Job.

Job 42:10 And the LORD turned the captivity of Job.(like us when afflictions.prevail, we are in a captivity, comparable to the captivities of larger scale that ancient Israel and Judah went through {*}), when he prayed for his friends. Also the LORD gave Job twice.as much as he had before.

Job 42:11 Then came there unto him all his brethren and all his sisters and all they that had been of his acquaintance before and did eat bread with him in his house and they bemoaned him and comforted him over all the evil that the LORD had brought upon him.(why does God bring evil). Every man also gave him a piece of money and every one an earring of gold.

Where were they all before when Job was going through all his afflictions?.Job 19:13-19.

Job 42:12 So the LORD blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning. For he had fourteen thousand sheep and six thousand camels and a thousand yoke of oxen and a thousand she asses.

Job 42:13 He had also seven sons and three daughters.

Job 42:14,15 And he called the name of the first, Jemima and the name of the second, Kezia and the name of the third, Kerenhappuch. And in all the land were no women found so fair as the daughters of Job and their father gave them inheritance among their brethren.

Job 42:16,17 After this lived Job an hundred and forty years and saw his sons and his sons' sons, even four generations. So Job died, being old and full of days.
