Bible Commentary for Job 19:8

Wesley's Notes for Job 19:8


19:7 Cry - Unto God. Wrong - That I am oppressed by my friends.

19:9 Glory - Of my estate, children, authority, and all my comforts. Crown - All my power, and laid my honour in the dust.

19:10 Every side - In all respects, my person, and family, and estate. Gone - I am a lost and dead man. Hope - All my hopes of the present life, but not of the life to come. Tree - Which being once plucked up by the roots, never grows again. Hope in this life is a perishing thing. But the hope of good men, when it is cut off from this world, is but removed like a tree, transplanted from this nursery to the garden of God.
