10 Behold, he findeth occasions against me, he counteth me for his enemy,
10 Yet God has found fault with me; he considers me his enemy.
10 Behold, he finds occasions against me, he counts me as his enemy,
10 But God keeps picking on me; he treats me like I'm his enemy.
10 Yet He finds occasions against me, He counts me as His enemy;
10 God is picking a quarrel with me, and he considers me his enemy.
Matthew Henry's Commentary on Job 33:10
Commentary on Job 33:8-13
(Read Job 33:8-13)
Elihu charges Job with reflecting upon the justice and goodness of God. When we hear any thing said to God's dishonour, we ought to bear our testimony against it. Job had represented God as severe in marking what he did amiss. Elihu urges that he had spoken wrong, and that he ought to humble himself before God, and by repentance to unsay it. God is not accountable to us. It is unreasonable for weak, sinful creatures, to strive with a God of infinite wisdom, power, and goodness. He acts with perfect justice, wisdom, and goodness, where we cannot perceive it.
