Job 10

Expositor's Dictionary of TextsExpositor's Dictionary

Verses 1-22

Job 10:1-2

'In a man under the immediate pressure of a great sorrow,' says George Eliot in her Essays, 'we tolerate morbid exaggerations, we are prepared to see him turn away a weary eye from sunlight and flowers and sweet human faces, as if this rich and glorious life had no significance but as a preliminary of death; we do not criticize his views, we compassionate his feelings.'

References. X. 2. Spurgeon, Sermons, vol. v. No. 283. X. 8. H. Melvill, Penny Pulpit, No. 2342.

Job 10:10

The example of Job protects us from the charge of blasphemy in not suppressing our doubts. Nothing can be more daring than his interrogations. There is no impiety whatever in them, nor are they recognized as impious in the final chapters of the book.

Mark Rutherford, The Deliverance, pp. 138, 139.

References. X. 12. Spurgeon, Sermons, vol. xxxix. No. 2314. X. 12, 13. Ibid. vol. xlvi. No. 2682.
