Job's Plea to God
4Do You have eyes of flesh? Do You see as man sees? 5Are Your days like those of a mortal, or Your years like those of a man, 6that You should seek my iniquity and search out my sin—…

that You should seek my iniquity and search out my sin--


Treasury of Scripture

Are your days as the days of man? are your years as man's days,

Psalm 90:2-4
Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God…

Psalm 102:12,24-27
But thou, O LORD, shalt endure for ever; and thy remembrance unto all generations…

Hebrews 1:12
And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail.









Verse 5. - Are thy days as man's days? In short-lived man, shortsightedness and prejudice are excusable, but not in one whose days are unlike man's days - whose "years endure throughout all generations" (Is. 102:24). Such a one ought to be above all human infirmity. Or thy years as man's days? We should have expected "as man's years." But it marks the disparity more strongly to say, "Are thy years not greater in number even than man's [literally, 'a strong man's'] days?"
