7 Behold, my terror shall not make thee afraid, neither shall my hand be heavy upon thee.
7 No fear of me should alarm you, nor should my hand be heavy on you.
7 Behold, no fear of me need terrify you; my pressure will not be heavy upon you.
7 So let's work this through together; don't let my aggressiveness overwhelm you.
7 Surely no fear of me will terrify you, Nor will my hand be heavy on you.
7 So you don't need to be afraid of me. I won't come down hard on you.
Matthew Henry's Commentary on Job 33:7
Commentary on Job 33:1-7
(Read Job 33:1-7)
Job had desired a judge to decide his appeal. Elihu was one according to his wish, a man like himself. If we would rightly convince men, it must be by reason, not by terror; by fair argument, not by a heavy hand.
