14 The deep says, "It is not in me"; the sea says, "It is not with me."
14 The depth saith, It is not in me: and the sea saith, It is not with me.
14 The deep says, 'It is not in me,' and the sea says, 'It is not with me.'
14 Earth's depths say, 'It's not here'; ocean deeps echo, 'Never heard of it.'
14 The deep says, 'It is not in me'; And the sea says, 'It is not with me.'
14 'It is not here,' says the ocean. 'Nor is it here,' says the sea.
Matthew Henry's Commentary on Job 28:14
Commentary on Job 28:12-19
(Read Job 28:12-19)
Job here speaks of wisdom and understanding, the knowing and enjoying of God and ourselves. Its worth is infinitely more than all the riches in this world. It is a gift of the Holy Ghost which cannot be bought with money. Let that which is most precious in God's account, be so in ours. Job asks after it as one that truly desired to find it, and despaired of finding it any where but in God; any way but by Divine revelation.
