Why from the womb do I not die? From the belly I have come forth and gasp!
Job 3:11 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Why died I not from the womb - As the other circumstance did not take place, why was I not still-born, without the possibility of reviviscence? or, as this did not occur, why did I not die as soon as born? These three things appear to me to be clearly intended here: -
1. Dying in the womb, or never coming to maturity, as in the case of an abortion.
2. Being still-born, without ever being able to breathe.
3. Or, if born alive, dying within a short time after. And to these states he seems to refer in the following verses.
