3 My words shall be of the uprightness of my heart: and my lips shall utter knowledge clearly.
3 My words come from an upright heart; my lips sincerely speak what I know.
3 My words declare the uprightness of my heart, and what my lips know they speak sincerely.
3 I have no ulterior motives in this; I'm speaking honestly from my heart.
3 My words come from my upright heart; My lips utter pure knowledge.
3 I speak with all sincerity; I speak the truth.
Matthew Henry's Commentary on Job 33:3
Commentary on Job 33:1-7
(Read Job 33:1-7)
