Job 34:5 Parallel
Barnes' Notes on the Bible

For Job hath said, I am righteous - see Job 13:18, "I know that I shall be justified;" compare Job 23:10-11, where he says, if he was tried he would come forth as gold. Elihu may have also referred to the general course of remark which he had pursued as vindicating himself.

Now it is possible for a predestined man, like
