Job 16:13 Parallel
CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
16:13 His archers - Whoever are our enemies, we must look on them as God's archers, and see him directing the arrow.
For the Almighty has struck me down with his arrows. Their poison infects my spirit. God's terrors are lined up against me.
His troops advance. They build up roads to attack me. They camp all around my tent.
The arrow is pulled from their back, and the arrowhead glistens with blood. The terrors of death are upon them.
Who is able to count his heavenly army? Doesn't his light shine on all the earth?
He bends his bow against his people, as though he were their enemy. His strength is used against them to kill their finest youth. His fury is poured out like fire on beautiful Jerusalem.
I have cried until the tears no longer come; my heart is broken. My spirit is poured out in agony as I see the desperate plight of my people. Little children and tiny babies are fainting and dying in the streets.
He has dragged me off the path and torn me in pieces, leaving me helpless and devastated.
