"Why does the Almighty not set times for judgment? Why must those who know him look in vain for such days?
King James Bible
Why, seeing times are not hidden from the Almighty, do they that know him not see his days?
Darby Bible Translation
Why are not times treasured up with the Almighty? why do not they that know him see his days?
World English Bible
"Why aren't times laid up by the Almighty? Why don't those who know him see his days?
Young's Literal Translation
Wherefore from the Mighty One Times have not been hidden, And those knowing Him have not seen His days.
Job 24:1 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Why, seeing times are not hidden from the Almighty - Mr. Good translates: "Wherefore are not doomsdays kept by the Almighty, so that his offenders may eye their periods?" Doomsdays are here used in the same sense as term times; and the wish is, that God would appoint such times that the falsely accused might look forward to them with comfort; knowing that, on their arrival, they should have a fair hearing, and their innocence be publicly declared; and their detractors, and the unjust in general, meet with their deserts. But God reserves the knowledge of these things to himself. "The holy patriarch," says Mr. Good, "has uniformly admitted that in the aggregate scale of Providence the just are rewarded and the wicked punished for their respective deeds, in some period or other of their lives. But he has contended in various places, and especially in Job 21:7-13, that the exceptions to this general rule are numerous: so numerous, as to be sufficient to render the whole scheme of providential interposition perfectly mysterious and incomprehensible, Job 23:8-12; so in the passage before us: if the retribution ye speak of be universal, and which I am ready to admit to a certain extent to be true and unquestionable, I not only ask, Why do the just ever suffer in the midst of their righteousness? but, Why do not the wicked see such retribution displayed before their eyes by stated judgments, so that they may at one and the same time know and tremble?"

LibraryWhether the Husband Can on his Own Judgment Put Away his Wife on Account of Fornication?
Objection 1: It would seem that the husband can on his own judgment put away his wife on account of fornication. For when sentence has been pronounced by the judge, it is lawful to carry it out without any further judgment. But God, the just Judge, has pronounced this judgment, that a husband may put his wife away on account of fornication. Therefore no further judgment is required for this. Objection 2: Further, it is stated (Mat. 1:19) that Joseph . . . being a just man . . . "was minded to put" …

Whether the Old Law Set Forth Suitable Precepts About the Members of the Household?
He said to them: "It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority.
All his days the wicked man suffers torment, the ruthless man through all the years stored up for him.
My times are in your hands; deliver me from the hands of my enemies, from those who pursue me.
The LORD Almighty has a day in store for all the proud and lofty, for all that is exalted (and they will be humbled),
But that day belongs to the Lord, the LORD Almighty-- a day of vengeance, for vengeance on his foes. The sword will devour till it is satisfied, till it has quenched its thirst with blood. For the Lord, the LORD Almighty, will offer sacrifice in the land of the north by the River Euphrates.
"The day of the LORD is near for all nations. As you have done, it will be done to you; your deeds will return upon your own head.
Be silent before the Sovereign LORD, for the day of the LORD is near. The LORD has prepared a sacrifice; he has consecrated those he has invited.
