Treasury of Scripture

Or, Deliver me from the enemy's hand? or, Redeem me from the hand of the mighty?

Redeem.

Job 5:20
In famine he shall redeem thee from death: and in war from the power of the sword.

Leviticus 25:48
After that he is sold he may be redeemed again; one of his brethren may redeem him:

Nehemiah 5:8
And I said unto them, We after our ability have redeemed our brethren the Jews, which were sold unto the heathen; and will ye even sell your brethren? or shall they be sold unto us? Then held they their peace, and found nothing to answer.









Verse 23. - Or, Deliver me from the enemy's hand? rather, from the hand of the violent man. Or, Redeem me from the hand of the mighty? literally, of the oppressor (see the Revised Version). Job had not called on his friends to do any of these things. He had not worn out their patience by asking now for this, and now for that. But he had expected their compassion, and this was denied him.
