New International Version
someone to remove God's rod from me, so that his terror would frighten me no more.
King James Bible
Let him take his rod away from me, and let not his fear terrify me:
Darby Bible Translation
Let him take his rod away from me, and let not his terror make me afraid,
World English Bible
Let him take his rod away from me. Let his terror not make me afraid;
Young's Literal Translation
He doth turn aside from off me his rod, And His terror doth not make me afraid,
Job 9:34 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Let him take his rod away - In the Masoretic Bibles, the word שבטו shibto, his rod, is written with a large ט teth, as above; and as the letter in numerals stands for 9, the Masora says the word was thus written to show the nine calamities under which Job had suffered, and which he wished God to remove. As שבט shebet signifies, not only rod, but also scepter or the ensign of royalty, Job might here refer to God sitting in his majesty upon the judgment-seat; and this sight so appalled him, that, filled with terror, he was unable to speak. When a sinful soul sees God in his majesty, terror seizes upon it, and prayer is impossible. We have a beautiful illustration of this, Isaiah 6:1-5 : "I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. Then said I, Wo is me, for I am undone, because I am a man of unclean lips; for mine eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts."

They are passed away as the swift ships: as the eagle that hasteth to the prey.--Thou carriest them away as with a flood; they are as a sleep . . . in the morning they are like grass which groweth up. In the morning it flourisheth, and groweth up: in the evening it is cut down, and withereth.--Man that is born of a woman …

Withdraw your hand far from me, and stop frightening me with your terrors.
Remove your scourge from me; I am overcome by the blow of your hand.
I will punish their sin with the rod, their iniquity with flogging;
