* This anxietjT which attended Job in his first prosperitjF, was pro*
bably lest his children should fall into sin. Vide c. i. 5. viii. 4. ir.
8^-1 1. He might also have been apprehensive of the incursions of
the Sabeans and Chaldeans. The Chaldee paraphrast reaijs verse S6
interrogatively; Was I not in safety, &c. when it was told me of my
successive losses? but trouble came upon me when I heard of the
deat^ of my children.

The author of The Divine Legation of Motee demonetratedj con-
trasting this passage with ch. xxix. 18, and xxx. 26, observes^
<< These things are entirely discordant, if understood of one and the
same person*** To which Mr. Petet*s answers; << Perhaps not, fiyr

trouble came. \

though I might insist upon it as a thing very pardonable, and not at
all ilnnatural, for a person under an excessive load of gi^ef to ibrget
himself K littlei and to talk in<:oitsistently, especially at the distance
of so many chapters; yet I shall waive this plea, because I think there
is an easy way of reconciling these passages. If we suppose^ for in-
stance^ thai the fear and disquiet expressed iii the ilrst of them was
a fear for his children; and the hope and confidence expressed in the
two latter, were such as flowed from a conscience of his own inte^pri-
Xj% and sincer^ endeavour to discharge his duty."

♦ Whether Job's extraordinaiy sufferings were not the punish-
ment, and proof of extraordinary, but concealed guilt, was the point
in dispute. Though the principle adopted by the three friends was
erroneous, yet when they speak of divine justice and human guilty
they are correct. Job's denial of the charge of hjrpocrisy was right,
but he went too far in pleading for his innocency • All of them, except
Elihu, became too warm in the dispute; but all of them agree in
the great principles of the trt^ religion; the existence^ nature, giori'
ous perfections, and yovereignty of God; the creation of the world,
the &11 of man, &c. The errors and defects here exhibited are do
more given for our imitation, than those of Moses, David, or Jonah
were; but it was proper the conduct and characters of the speakers
should be given truly, and consequently with their imperfections*

Behold, thou hast instructed many, and thou hast strengthened

T Remember, I pray thee, who ever perished, being innocent? or
Ihere were the righteous cut off?

Z Even as X have seen, they that plough int<[uity, and sow wicked-
less, reap the same.

9 By the blast of God they perish, and by the breath of his nostrils
ire they consumed.
