Job 16:22 Parallel
CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
16:22 Go - To the state and place of the dead, whence men cannot return to this life. The meaning is, my death hastens, and therefore I earnestly desire that the cause depending, between me and my friends, may be determined, that if I be guilty of these things, I may bear the shame of it before all men, and if I be innocent, that I may see my own integrity, and the credit of religion, (which suffers upon this occasion) vindicated. How very certainly, and how very shortly are we likewise to go this journey.
Had I died at birth, I would now be at peace. I would be asleep and at rest.
before I leave--never to return--for the land of darkness and utter gloom.
I need someone to mediate between God and me, as a person mediates between friends.
