Job 16:10 Parallel
CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
16:10 They - My friends. Gaped - Opened their mouths wide against me. In all this Job was a type of Christ. These very expressions are used in the predictions of his sufferings, Psal 22:13. They gaped upon me with their mouths, and Mic 5:1. They shall smite the judge of Israel upon the check.
Instantly Ananias the high priest commanded those close to Paul to slap him on the mouth.
God has handed me over to sinners. He has tossed me into the hands of the wicked.
These outcasts oppose me to my face. They send me sprawling and lay traps in my path.
Arise, O LORD! Rescue me, my God! Slap all my enemies in the face! Shatter the teeth of the wicked!
Like lions they open their jaws against me, roaring and tearing into their prey.
But they are glad now that I am in trouble; they gleefully join together against me. I am attacked by people I don't even know; they slander me constantly.
They shout, "Aha! Aha! With our own eyes we saw him do it!"
