Wesley's Notes for Job 16:10


16:10 They - My friends. Gaped - Opened their mouths wide against me. In all this Job was a type of Christ. These very expressions are used in the predictions of his sufferings, #Psal 22:13|. They gaped upon me with their mouths, and #Mic 5:1|. They shall smite the judge of Israel upon the check.
