Job 36:7 Parallel
CommentaryKeil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament
1 Then Elihu continued and said:
2 Suffer me a little, and I will inform thee,
For there is something still to be said for Eloah.
3 I will fetch my knowledge from afar,
And to my Creator will I ascribe right.
4 For truly my words are not lies,
One perfect in knowledge stands before thee.
Elihu's preceding three speeches were introduced by ויּען; this fourth, in honour of the number three, is introduced only as a continuation of the others. Job is to wait yet a little while, for he still has ( equals עוד לּי), or: there still are, words in favour of Eloah; i.e., what may be said in vindication of God against Job's complaints and accusations is not yet exhausted. This appears to be the only instance of the Aramaic כּתּר being taken up as Hebr.; whereas הוּה, nunciare (Arab. wḥâ, I, IV), is a poetic Aramaism occurring even in Psalm 19:3 (comp. on the construction Job 32:6); and זעיר (a diminutive form, after the manner of the Arab. zu‛air) belongs in Isaiah 28:10, Isaiah 28:13 to the popular language (of Jerusalem), but is here used poetically. The verb נשׂא, Job 36:3, is not to be understood according to נשׂא משׁל, but according to 1 Kings 10:11; and למרחוק signifies, as also Job 39:29; Isaiah 37:26, e longinquo, viz., out of the wide realm of history and nature. The expression נתן צדק follows the analogy of (עז) נתן כבוד. דּעה, Job 36:4, interchanges with the דּע which belongs exclusively to Elihu, since Elihu styles himself תּמים דּעות, as Job 37:16 God תּמים דּעים (comp. 1 Samuel 2:3, אל דּעות). תמים in this combination with דעות cannot be intended of purity of character; but as Elihu there attributes absolute perfection of knowledge in every direction to God, so here, in reference to the theodicy which he opposes to Job, he claims faultlessness and clearness of perception.
Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
1 Samuel 2:8
He raises up the poor from the dust; he lifts the needy from the ash heap to make them sit with princes and inherit a seat of honor. For the pillars of the earth are the LORD's, and on them he has set the world.
"Remember: who that was innocent ever perished? Or where were the upright cut off?
he sets on high those who are lowly, and those who mourn are lifted to safety.
For when they are humbled you say, 'It is because of pride'; but he saves the lowly.
Does not he see my ways and number all my steps?
Behold, the eye of the LORD is on those who fear him, on those who hope in his steadfast love,
The eyes of the LORD are toward the righteous and his ears toward their cry.
