“If we assay to commune with thee, wilt thou be grieved? but who can withhold himself from speaking?”
King James Version (KJV)
4:2 If we, &c. - He speaks with great modesty. He will not undertake the cause alone, but joins his friends with him. He will not promise much, but only assay, or try if he could propose any thing pertinent to Job's case. Withhold - When he hears such words from such a person as thou art.
