J O B
Job, in this chapter, goes on to express the
bitter sense he had of his calamities and to justify himself in his
desire of death. I. He complains to himself and his friends of his
troubles, and the constant agitation he was in, ver. 1-6. II. He turns to God, and
expostulates with him (ver.
7, to the end), in which, 1. He pleads the final period
which death puts to our present state, ver. 7-10. 2. He passionately complains of
the miserable condition he was now in, ver. 11-16. 3. He wonders that God will
thus contend with him, and begs for the pardon of his sins and a
speedy release out of his miseries, ver. 17-21. It is hard to methodize the
speeches of one who owned himself almost desperate, ch. vi. 26.
