John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

Mark well, O Job,.... Consider and weigh well what has been said; or rather attend to what is further to be said:

hearken unto me; to what he was about to say; for he was full of matter, and had not yet vented all he had to utter:

hold thy peace, and I will speak; be silent and do not interrupt, and I will go on with my discourse.

John Trapp Complete Commentary

Job 33:31 Mark well, O Job, hearken unto me: hold thy peace, and I will speak.

Ver. 31. Mark well, O Job, hearken unto me] For I speak from God, and for God. It was a good speech of Austin to Manicheus, contesting with him for audience. Hear me, hear me, said Manicheus. Nay, saith Austin, Nec ego to, nec tu me, sed ambo audiamus Apostolum, dicentem, Peccatum non cognovi, &c., Neither will I hear thee nor do thou hear me, but let us both hear the apostle, saying, "I had not known lust," &c.

Mark Dunagan Commentary on the Bible

Elihu earnestly wants Job to carefully listen to him for two reasons. First, he really wants to clear Job. He is not Job"s enemy, and he wanted to impart wisdom to Job. He does not simply want to win an argument, rather, he wants to see Job justified, he wants to work towards what God would desire.
