CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
17:2 Are not - Do not my friends, instead of comforting, mock me? Thus he returns to what he had said, chap.16:20, and intimates the justice of his following appeal.
Should I remain silent while you babble on? When you mock God, shouldn't someone make you ashamed?
Yet my friends laugh at me, for I call on God and expect an answer. I am a just and blameless man, yet they laugh at me.
"God has made a mockery of me among the people; they spit in my face.
Bear with me, and let me speak. After I have spoken, you may resume mocking me.
