CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
16:12 Shaken - As a mighty man doth with some stripling, when he wrestleth with him. Mark - That he may shoot all his arrows in me.
If I have sinned, what have I done to you, O watcher of all humanity? Why make me your target? Am I a burden to you?
For he attacks me with a storm and repeatedly wounds me without cause.
God has handed me over to sinners. He has tossed me into the hands of the wicked.
He has dragged me off the path and torn me in pieces, leaving me helpless and devastated.
He has drawn his bow and made me the target for his arrows.
