Why doth thy heart carry thee away? and why do thine eyes wink?
World English Bible
Why does your heart carry you away? Why do your eyes flash,
Young's Literal Translation
What -- doth thine heart take thee away? And what -- are thine eyes high?
Job 15:12 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Why doth thine heart carry thee away? - Why is it that thou dost conceive and entertain such high sentiments of thyself?
And what do thy eyes wink at - With what splendid opinion of thyself is thine eye dazzled? Perhaps there is an allusion here to that sparkling in the eye which is excited by sensations of joy and pleasing objects of sight, or to that furious rolling of the eyes observed in deranged persons. Rosenmuller translates thus: -
Quo te tuus animus rapit?
Quid occuli tui vibrantes?
"Whither does thy soul hurry thee?
What mean thy rolling eyes?"
Thou seemest transported beyond thyself; thou art actuated by a furious spirit. Thou art beside thyself; thy words and thy eyes show it. None but a madman could speak and act as thou dost; for thou turnest thy spirit against God, and lettest such words go out of thy mouth, Job 15:13. This latter sense seems to agree best with the words of the text, and with the context.

As he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; because it is written, Be ye holy; …
