    Definitions for Job 22:23

    Iniquity - Sin; wickedness; evil.

    Clarke's Commentary on Job 22:23

    Thou shalt be built up - God will restore thee to thy wonted state of prosperity; and thou shalt again have a household, not only of servants, but of children also. So much may be Implied in the words, Thou shalt be Built Up. See my sermon on Job 22:21-23.

    Barnes' Notes on Job 22:23

    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.

    Thou shalt put away iniquity - Rosenmuller, Good, Noyes, and Wemyss, suppose correctly, as it seems to me, that the word "if" is to be understood here to complete the sense - "if thou shalt put away iniquity."

    From thy tabernacle - From thy tent, or dwelling.
