Wesley's Notes for Job 13:27


13:25 Leaf - One that can no more resist thy power, than a leaf, or a little dry straw can resist the wind or fire.

13:26 Writest - Thou appointest or inflictest. A metaphor from princes or judges, who anciently used to write their sentences.

13:28 He - He speaks of himself in the third person, as is usual in this and other sacred books. So the sense is, he, this poor frail creature, this body of mine; which possibly he pointed at with his finger, consumeth or pineth away.
