Hear now my reasoning, and listen to the pleadings of my lips.

Hear diligently my speech, and let this be your consolations…

Job 33:1-3
Wherefore, Job, I pray thee, hear my speeches, and hearken to all my words…

Job 34:2
Hear my words, O ye wise men; and give ear unto me, ye that have knowledge.









Verse 6. - Hear now my reasoning. As his friends have not kept silence, but have spoken, Job claims a right to be heard in his turn. If it be thought that he is somewhat impatient, it must be remembered that his opponents are three to one, all eager to catch him in a fault, and not very mild in their reprimands. And hearken to the pleadings of my lips. Job's "pleadings" are addressed, not to his friends, but to God, and are contained in vers. 14-28 of the present, and the whole of the succeeding chapter.
