Expository Notes of Dr. Thomas Constable

Job 24

 

 

Verses 18-25

Job"s confidence24:18-25

These confusing verses may seem to be saying that God does punish the wicked at all. Probably Job was reflecting that God does indeed punish them in death if not in life. [Note: Andersen, pp213-14.] What bothered him was why God did not punish them sooner. Even with more revelation than Job enjoyed, we still have great difficulty understanding God"s ways generally, and why He does what He does in specific individual lives particularly. God"s wisdom is still unfathomable.
