Job 16:18 Parallel
CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
16:18 Earth - The earth is said to cover that blood, which lies undiscovered and unrevenged: but saith Job, if I be guilty of destroying any man, let the earth disclose it; let it be brought to light. Cry - Let the cry of my complaints to men, or prayers to God, find no place in the ears or hearts of God or men, if this be true.
Yet I have done no wrong, and my prayer is pure.
Even now my witness is in heaven. My advocate is there on high.
O LORD, listen to my cry; give me the discerning mind you promised.
Look! The LORD is coming from heaven to punish the people of the earth for their sins. The earth will no longer hide those who have been killed. They will be brought out for all to see.
