John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Job 42:1

Then Job answered the Lord, and said.
] For though he had said he would answer no more, ( Job 40:5 ) ; yet he might mean not in the manner he had, complaining of God and justifying himself; besides he might change his mind without any imputation of falsehood or a lie; see ( Jeremiah 20:9 ) ; to which may be added, that he had then said all he had to say, and did not know he should have more: he then confessed as much as he was convinced of, but it was not enough; and now through what the Lord had since said to him he was more convinced of his ignorance, mistakes, and sins, and had such a sight of God and of himself, that he could not forbear speaking; moreover an injunction was laid upon him from the Lord to speak again, and therefore he was obliged to give in his answer; see ( Job 40:7 ) .
