John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 12:16

With him — The same thing he had said before, Job 12:13, but he repeats it here to prepare the way for the following events, which are eminent instances, both of his power and wisdom. Are his — Wholly subject to his disposal. He governs the deceiver and sets bounds to his deceits, how far they shall extend; he also over — rules all this to his own glory, and the accomplishment of his righteous designs of trying the good, and punishing wicked men, by giving them up to believe lies. Yet God is not the author of any error or sin, but only the wise and holy governor of it.
