New International Version
My breath is offensive to my wife; I am loathsome to my own family.
King James Bible
My breath is strange to my wife, though I intreated for the children's sake of mine own body.
Darby Bible Translation
My breath is strange to my wife, and my entreaties to the children of my [mother's] womb.
World English Bible
My breath is offensive to my wife. I am loathsome to the children of my own mother.
Young's Literal Translation
My spirit is strange to my wife, And my favours to the sons of my mother's womb.
Job 19:17 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Though I entreated for the children's sake of mine own body - This may imply no more than adjuring her by the tenderest ties, by their affectionate intercourse, and consequently by the children which had been the seals of their mutual affection, though these children were no more. But the mention of his children in this place may intimate that he had still some remaining; that there might have been young ones, who, not being of a proper age to attend the festival of their elder brothers and sisters, escaped that sad catastrophe. The Septuagint have, Προσεκαλουμην δε κολακευων υἰους παλλακιδων μου, "I affectionately entreated the children of my concubines." But there is no ground in the Hebrew text for such a strange exceptionable rendering. Coverdale has, I am fayne to speake fayre to the children of myne own body.

I know that my Redeemer liveth.--JOB 19:25. If, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.--This man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood. Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them. Because I live, ye shall live also.--If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable. …
