10 Then should I yet have comfort; yea, I would harden myself in sorrow: let him not spare; for I have not concealed the words of the Holy One.
10 Then I would still have this consolation- my joy in unrelenting pain- that I had not denied the words of the Holy One.
10 This would be my comfort; I would even exult
10 I'd at least have the satisfaction of not having blasphemed the Holy God, before being pressed past the limits.
10 Then I would still have comfort; Though in anguish, I would exult, He will not spare; For I have not concealed the words of the Holy One.
10 At least I can take comfort in this: Despite the pain, I have not denied the words of the Holy One.
Matthew Henry's Commentary on Job 6:10
Commentary on Job 6:8-13
(Read Job 6:8-13)
Job had desired death as the happy end of his miseries. For this, Eliphaz had reproved him, but he asks for it again with more vehemence than before. It was very rash to speak thus of God destroying him. Who, for one hour, could endure the wrath of the Almighty, if he let loose his hand against him? Let us rather say with David, O spare me a little. Job grounds his comfort upon the testimony of his conscience, that he had been, in some degree, serviceable to the glory of God. Those who have grace in them, who have the evidence of it, and have it in exercise, have wisdom in them, which will be their help in the worst of times.
