Bible Commentary for Job 16:15

Wesley's Notes for Job 16:15


16:15 I have - So far am I from stretching out my hand against God, chap.#15:25|, that I have humbled myself deeply under his hand. I have not only put on sackcloth, but sewed it on, as being resolved to continue my humiliation, as long as my affliction continues. Defiled my horn - I have willingly parted with all my wealth, and power, and glory (as the horn often signifies in scripture,) and been content to lie in the dust.
