He removeth away the speech of the trusty, and taketh away the understanding of the aged.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

12:20 removeth away the speech. This possibly refers to the confusion of tongues at Babel. The previous verse (Job 12:19) had said God “overthroweth the mighty,” possibly referring to Nimrod, the “mighty hunter before the LORD” (Genesis 10:9), whose rebellion against God had led God to confuse the languages and disperse the nations from Babel.
