This is Job's short reply to Bildad's short
discourse, in which he is so far from contradicting him that he
confirms what he had said, and out-does him in magnifying God and
setting forth his power, to show what reason he had still to say,
as he did (ch. xiii.
2), "What you know, the same do I know also." I. He
shows that Bildad's discourse was foreign to the matter he was
discoursing of—though very true and good, yet not to the purpose,
ver. 2-4. II. That it was
needless to the person he was discoursing with; for he knew it, and
believed it, and could speak of it as well as he and better, and
could add to the proofs which he had produced of God's power and
greatness, which he does in the rest of his discourse (ver. 5-13), concluding that, when
they had both said what they could, all came short of the merit of
the subject and it was still far from being exhausted, ver. 14.
