Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 22:25

_ _ Apodosis.

_ _ Yea — rather, Then shall the Almighty be, etc.

_ _ defence — rather, as the same Hebrew means in Job 22:24 (see on Job 22:24) — Thy precious metals; God will be to thee in the place of riches.

_ _ plenty of silver — rather, “And shall be to thee in the place of laboriously-obtained treasures of silver” [Gesenius]. Elegantly implying, it is less labor to find God than the hidden metals; at least to the humble seeker (Job 28:12-28). But [Maurer] “the shining silver.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 22:21-30.
