Job 22:12 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Is not God in the height of heaven? - It appears, from this and the following verses, that Eliphaz was attributing infidel and blasphemous speeches or sentiments to Job. As if he had said: "Thou allowest that there is a God, but thou sayest that he is infinitely exalted above the heavens and the stars, and that there is so much dense ether and thick cloud between his throne and the earth, that he can neither see it nor its inhabitants." These were sentiments which Job never held, and never uttered; but if a man be dressed in a bear's skin, he may be hunted and worried by his own dogs. Job's friends attribute falsities to him, and then dilate upon them, and draw inferences from them injurious to his character. Polemic writers, both in theology and politics, often act in this way.

"Can you fathom the mysteries of God? Can you probe the limits of the Almighty?
They are higher than the heavens above--what can you do? They are deeper than the depths below--what can you know?
Look up at the heavens and see; gaze at the clouds so high above you.
