Wesley's Notes for Job 6:11


6:11 Strength - My strength is so spent, that it is vain for me to hope for such restitution as thou hast promised me, chap.#5:22|. End - What is death to me? It is not terrible, but comfortable. That - Then why should I desire to prolong my life. But as desirous of death as Job was, yet he never offered to put an end to his own life. Such a thought will never be entertained by any, that have the least regard to the law of God and nature. How uneasy soever the soul's confinement in the body may be, it must by no means break the prison, but wait for a fair discharge.
