And Job answered and said,









XII.

(1) And Job answered and said.--Each of the friends has now supplied his quota, and Job proceeds to reply to the third, showing that he is far more conversant with the wisdom and majesty of God than they are themselves, though in their own esteem they alone are wise.

Verses 1, 2. - And Job answered and said, No doubt but ye are the people. Bitterly ironical. Ye are those to whom alone it belongs to speak - the only "people" to whom attention is due. And wisdom shall die with you. "At your death," i.e., "all wisdom will have fled the earth; there will be no one left who knows anything." At least, no doubt, you think so.
