Job 4

Scofield's Reference NotesScofield's Notes

Verse 1

Eliphaz

Eliphaz is a religious dogmatist whose dogmatism rests upon a mysterious and remarkable experience Job 4:12-16. Did a spirit ever pass before Job's face? Did Job's hair of his flesh ever stand up? Then let him be meek while one so superior as Eliphaz declares the causes of his misfortunes. Eliphaz says many true things (as do the others), and often rises into eloquence, but he remains hard and cruel, a dogmatist who must be heard because of one remarkable experience.

Verse 9

breath

i.e. by His anger, as Isaiah 30:33; Exodus 15:8; Job 1:19; Job 15:30; Isaiah 11:4; 2 Thessalonians 2:8.

Verse 18

trust (See Scofield " :-") .

fear (See Scofield " :-") .
