Wesley's Notes for Job 13:15


13:14 Wherefore - And this may be a reason of his desire of liberty of speech, because he could hold his tongue no longer, but must needs tear himself to pieces, if he had not some vent for his grief. The phrase having his life in his hand, denotes a condition extremely dangerous.

13:17 Hear - He now comes more closely to his business, the foregoing verses being mostly in way of preface.
