Barnes' Notes on the Bible

If thou return to the Almighty - Assuming that he was an impenitent sinner, and wholly unreconciled to him.

Thou shalt be built up - A figure taken from building up a house, in contradistinction from pulling one down, and denoting that he would be prospered and happy.

From thy tabernacle - From thy tent, or dwelling.

And thus hazard and luck would disappear; which is against common opinion. Objection 2: Further, a wise provider excludes any defect or evil, as far as he can, from those over whom he has a care. But we see many evils existing. Either, then, God cannot hinder these, and thus is not omnipotent; or else He does
