New International Version
inside I am like bottled-up wine, like new wineskins ready to burst.
King James Bible
Behold, my belly is as wine which hath no vent; it is ready to burst like new bottles.
Darby Bible Translation
Behold, my belly is as wine which hath no vent; like new flasks, it is ready to burst.
World English Bible
Behold, my breast is as wine which has no vent; like new wineskins it is ready to burst.
Young's Literal Translation
Lo, my breast is as wine not opened, Like new bottles it is broken up.
Job 32:19 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
My belly is as wine which hath no vent - New wine in a state of effervescence.
Like new bottles - Bottles, or rather bags, made of goat-skins. The head and shanks being cut off, the animal is cased out of the skin. The skin is then properly dressed; the anus and four shank holes properly tied up; and an aperture left at the neck or in some other place for the liquor to be poured in, and drawn out. One of these now lies before me, well tanned, and beautifully ornamented, and capable of holding many gallons. They are used, not only to carry wine and water, but for butter, and also for various dry goods. I have mentioned this in another place. When the wine is in a state of fermentation, and the skin has no vent, these bottles or bags are ready to burst; and if they be old, the new wine destroys them, breaks the old stitching, or rends the old skin. Our Lord makes use of the same figure, Matthew 9:17 (note); where see the note.

There are many differences among men in this world, that, as to outward appearance, are great and wide, and indeed they are so eagerly pursued, and seriously minded by men, as if they were great and momentous. You see what a strife and contention there is among men, how to be extracted out of the dregs of the multitude, and set a little higher …

Neither do people pour new wine into old wineskins. If they do, the skins will burst; the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved."
For I am full of words, and the spirit within me compels me;
I must speak and find relief; I must open my lips and reply.
But I am full of the wrath of the LORD, and I cannot hold it in. "Pour it out on the children in the street and on the young men gathered together; both husband and wife will be caught in it, and the old, those weighed down with years.
