6 The tents of marauders are undisturbed, and those who provoke God are secure- those God has in his hand.[1]

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Job 12:6

Commentary on Job 12:6-11

(Read Job 12:6-11)

Job appeals to facts. The most audacious robbers, oppressors, and impious wretches, often prosper. Yet this is not by fortune or chance; the Lord orders these things. Worldly prosperity is of small value in his sight: he has better things for his children. Job resolves all into the absolute proprietorship which God has in all the creatures. He demands from his friends liberty to judge of what they had said; he appeals to any fair judgment.
