Geneva Bible Notes (1560): Job 4

3 b Thou haste comforted others in their afflictions, and canst not now comfort thyselfe.

6 c This he concludeth that Job was but an hypocrite & had no true feare nor trust in God.

7 d He concludeth that Job was reproued, seing that God handeled him so extremely, which is the argument that the carnal men make against the children of God.

9 f He sheweth that God nedeth no great preparation to destroye his enemies: for he can do it with the blaste of his mouthe.

10 g Thogh men according to their office do not punish tyrants (whome for their crueltie he compareth to lions, and their children to their whelpes) yet God gothe is able, and his justice wil punish them.

12 h A thing that I knewe not before, was declared vnto me by vision: that is, that whosoeuer thinketh him selfe juste, shal be founde a sinner, when he commeth before God.

14 i In these visions which God sheweth to his creatures, there is euer a certeine feare joyned, that the autoritie thereof might be had in greater reuerence.

16 k When all things were quiet, or when the feare was somewhat aswaged, as God appeared to Eliah {1 King. 19,12}.

17 ! And of the presumption of his owne righteousnes

17 l He proueth that if God did punish the innocent, the creature shulde be more juste then the Creator, which were a blasphemie.

18 m If God finde imperfection in his Angels, when they are not mainteined by his power, how muche more shal he lay foly to mans charge when he wolde justifie him selfe against God?

19 n That is, in the mortal body, subject to corruption, {2 Cor. 5,1}

20 p No man for all this doeth consider it that any of them were so wise as to thinke on death.

20 o They se death continually before their eies, and daily approching toward them.

21 q That is, before that any of them were so wise as to thinke on death.
