Job 11:16 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Job 11:17 He springeth up as a flower, and is cut down;

Yea, he fleeth as a shadow, and endureth not.

And dost thou cast thine eyes upon such a one?

And wouldst thou bring me into judgment with thyself?

Yet now art thou numbering my steps;

Thou overlookest nothing of my sins: -

And for ever, as the crumbling mountain dissolveth,

And the rock mouldereth away from his place,

So consumest thou the hope of man,

Thou harassest him continually till he perish.

Why wilt thou not turn away from my transgression,

And let my calamity pass by?

If the iniquity of thy hand thou put away evil,

And let not wickedness dwell in thy tabernacles,

Whether God is a Body
Whether God is a Body We proceed to the first article thus: 1. It seems that God is a body. For what has three dimensions is a body, and sacred Scripture attributes three dimensions to God, as in Job 11:8-9: "It is as high as heaven; what canst thou do? deeper than hell; what canst thou know? The measure thereof is longer than the earth, and broader than the sea." God is therefore a body. 2. Again, everything that has figure is a body, since figure is a mode of quantity. Now it seems that God has

Whether There Should have Been Man Ceremonial Precepts?
Objection 1: It would seem that there should not have been many ceremonial precepts. For those things which conduce to an end should be proportionate to that end. But the ceremonial precepts, as stated above ([2105]AA[1],2), are ordained to the worship of God, and to the foreshadowing of Christ. Now "there is but one God, of Whom are all things . . . and one Lord Jesus Christ, by Whom are all things" (1 Cor. 8:6). Therefore there should not have been many ceremonial precepts. Objection 2: Further,

"And we all do Fade as a Leaf, and Our Iniquities, Like the Wind, have Taken us Away. "
Isaiah lxiv. 6.--"And we all do fade as a leaf, and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away." Here they join the punishment with the deserving cause, their uncleanness and their iniquities, and so take it upon them, and subscribe to the righteousness of God's dealing. We would say this much in general--First, Nobody needeth to quarrel God for his dealing. He will always be justified when he is judged. If the Lord deal more sharply with you than with others, you may judge there is a difference
