New Defender's Study Bible Notes
35:2 that thou saidst. Job never said any such thing. Elihu is so impressed with his own eloquence that he begins to exaggerate and distort Job’s statements.
35:16 words without knowledge. The arrogance of young Elihu is becoming insufferable. He accuses Job, far older and wiser than he, of speaking “words without knowledge.” When God comes down, just a few minutes later, He asks Job, whom He knew very well: “Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge” (Job 38:2), thus turning Elihu’s presumptuous words back on himself.
