Job 14:3 Parallel
CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
And dost thou open thine eyes upon such an one? - Is one so weak, so frail, so short-lived, worthy the constant vigilance of the infinite God? In Zechariah 12:4, the expression "to open the eyes" upon one, means to look angrily upon him. Here it means to observe or watch closely.
And bringest me into judgment with thee - Is it equal or proper that one so frail and feeble should be called to a trial with one so mighty as the infinite God? Does God seek a trial with one so much his inferior, and so unable to stand before him? This is language taken from courts of justice, and the meaning is, that the parties were wholly unequal, and that it was unworthy of God to maintain a controversy in this manner with feeble man. This is a favorite idea with Job, that there was no equality between him and God, and that the whole controversy was, therefore, conducted on his part with great disadvantage; compare the notes at Job 9:34-35.

Whether a Man May Merit for Himself the First Grace?
Whether Christ's Body Rose Again Entire?
That You examine him every morning And try him every moment?
"Is it because of your reverence that He reproves you, That He enters into judgment against you?
What is man that You take thought of him, And the son of man that You care for him?
And do not enter into judgment with Your servant, For in Your sight no man living is righteous.
O LORD, what is man, that You take knowledge of him? Or the son of man, that You think of him?
