241 Why, seeing times are not hidden from the Almighty, do they that know him not see his days?
241 "Why does the Almighty not set times for judgment? Why must those who know him look in vain for such days?
241 "Why are not times of judgment kept by the Almighty, and why do those who know him never see his days?
241 "But if Judgment Day isn't hidden from the Almighty, why are we kept in the dark?
241 "Since times are not hidden from the Almighty, Why do those who know Him see not His days?
241 "Why doesn't the Almighty bring the wicked to judgment? Why must the godly wait for him in vain?
Matthew Henry's Commentary on Job 24:1
Commentary on Job 24:1-12
(Read Job 24:1-12)
Job discourses further about the prosperity of the wicked. That many live at ease who are ungodly and profane, he had showed, ch. xxi. Here he shows that many who live in open defiance of all the laws of justice, succeed in wicked practices; and we do not see them reckoned with in this world. He notices those that do wrong under pretence of law and authority; and robbers, those that do wrong by force. He says, "God layeth not folly to them;" that is, he does not at once send his judgments, nor make them examples, and so manifest their folly to all the world. But he that gets riches, and not by right, at his end shall be a fool, Jeremiah 17:11.
