"Surely no one lays a hand on a broken man when he cries for help in his distress.
King James Bible
Howbeit he will not stretch out his hand to the grave, though they cry in his destruction.
American Standard Version
Howbeit doth not one stretch out the hand in his fall? Or in his calamity therefore cry for help?
Young's Literal Translation
Surely not against the heap Doth He send forth the hand, Though in its ruin they have safety.
Job 30:24 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
He will not stretch out his hand to the grave - After all that has been said relative to the just translation and true meaning of this verse, is it not evident that it is in the mouth of Job a consolatory reflection? As if he said, Though I suffer here, I shall not suffer hereafter. Though he add stroke to stroke, so as to destroy my life, yet his displeasure shall not proceed beyond the grave.
Though they cry in his destruction - Mr. Good translates: Surely there, in its ruin, is freedom. In the sepulcher there is freedom from calamity, and rest for the weary.
