NET © Notes

tn The meaning of סוֹד (sod) is “confidence.” In the context the implication is “secret counsel” of the Lord God (see Jer 23:18). It is a question of confidence on the part of God, that only wisdom can know (see Prov 8:30,31). Job seemed to them to claim to have access to the mind of God.

tn In v. 4 the word meant “limit”; here it has a slightly different sense, namely, “to reserve for oneself.”
