Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 39:17

_ _ wisdom — such as God gives to other animals, and to man (Job 35:11). The Arab proverb is, “foolish as an ostrich.” Yet her very seeming want of wisdom is not without wise design of God, though man cannot see it; just as in the trials of the godly, which seem so unreasonable to Job, there lies hid a wise design.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 39:13-18.
