1 a Thus Job speaketh in his passions and after the judgement of the flesh: that is, that he seeth not the things that are done at times, nether yet hathe a peculiar care ouer all, because he punisheth not the wicked, nor reuengeth the godlie.
5 e He and his, liue by robbing and murdering.
6 g Signifying, that one wicked man wil not spoile another, but for necessitie.
8 h The poore are driuen by the wicked into rockes and holes, where thei can not lie drye for the rayne.
9 i That is, they so powle and pile the poore widowe, that she can not haue to susteine her self, that she may be able to giue her chidle sucke.
9 k That is, his garment, wherewith he shulde be couered or clad.
11 l In suche places, which are appointed for that purpose: meaning, that those that labour for the wicked, are pined for hungre.
12 m For the great oppression & extortion.
12 n Crye out & call for vengeance.
12 o God doeth not condemne the wicked, but semeth to passe ouer it by his long silence.
15 q By these particular vices, & the licence thereunto, he wolde proue that God punisheth not the wicked & rewardeth the juste.
18 r He fleeth to the waters for his succour.
19 t As the drye grounde is neuer ful with waters, so wil thei neuer cease sinning, til thei come to the graue.
20 u Thogh God suffer the wicked for a time, yet their end shal be moste vile destruction, & in this point Job cometh to him self and sheweth his confidence.
22 y He declareth that after that the wicked haue destroyed the weakest, thei wil do like to the stronger, and therefore are justely preuented by Gods judgements.
25 z That is, that contrary to your reasoning no man can giue a perfite reason of Gods judgements, let me be reproued.
