Treasury of Scripture

Have you marked the old way which wicked men have trodden?

the old way

Genesis 6:5,11-13
And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually…

Luke 17:26,27
And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man…









(15) Hast thou marked the old way . . .?--Rather, Dost thou keep the old way which the wicked men trod? Dost thou hold their tenets?

Verse 15. - Hast thou marked the old way which wicked men have trodden? rather, Wilt thou keep the old way etc.? (see the Revised Version). Eliphaz assumes that it is Job's intention to cast in his lot with these persons whose prosperous wickedness he has described in the preceding chapter (vers. 7-15). And this notwithstanding Job's final protest, "Be the counsel of the wicked far from me" (ver. 16). He calls the mode of life pursued by these wicked persons "the old way," either with allusion to the seed of Cain before the Flood, who "corrupted their way" (Genesis 6:12), or perhaps with reference to the descendants of Nimrod after it (see Professor Lee's 'Book of Job,' p. 361).
