CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
God forbid - לי חלילה châlı̂ylâh lı̂y. "Far be it from me." Literally, "Profane be it to me;" that is, I should regard it as unholy and profane; I cannot do it.
That I should justify you - That I should admit the correctness of your positions, and should concede that I am an hypocrite.

Till I die I will not remove mine integrity from me - I will not admit that I am insincere and hypocritical. This is the language of a man who was conscious of integrity, and who would not be deprived of that consciousness by any plausible representations of his professed friends.

"Desist now, let there be no injustice; Even desist, my righteousness is yet in it.
"Though He slay me, I will hope in Him. Nevertheless I will argue my ways before Him.
"I put on righteousness, and it clothed me; My justice was like a robe and a turban.
Let Him weigh me with accurate scales, And let God know my integrity.
Then these three men ceased answering Job, because he was righteous in his own eyes.
