NET © Notes

sn This is the description that the book gave to Job at the outset, a description that he deserved according to God’s revelation. The theme “God will not reject the blameless man” becomes Job’s main point (see 9:20,21; 10:3).

sn The idiom “to grasp the hand” of someone means to support or help the person.
